cocktail virgin slut: barracuda


1/4 Bourbon (1 oz Wild Turkey 101)
1/4 Aperol (1 oz)
1/4 Oloroso Sherry (1 oz Lustau)
1/4 Lemon Juice (1 oz)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass; I added a lemon twist.



Two Thursdays ago, I tuned in for Portland Cocktail Week’s class on equal parts cocktails with Lynette Marrero and Kara Newman. Lynette mentioned that one of the drinks on the menu at the Llama Inn was a riff on the Paper Plane called the Barracuda that swapped in Oloroso sherry for the Amaro Nonino. Once prepared, the Barracuda donated a lemon, Bourbon, and nutty sherry aroma with hints of orange to the nose. Next, malt, grape, and orange notes on the sip swam into whiskey, nutty, and orange flavors on the swallow.
