Sherry Margarita

Sherry Margarita

Manzanilla sherry, produced exclusively in the seaside township of Sanlúcar de Barrameda in southern Spain, is extremely dry and acidic. It’s also distinctly more saline than other fino sherries (which you could also use in this recipe). Combined with a pinch of salt, manzanilla amplifies and brightens the lime, rounds tequila’s edge and allows this margarita to go down that much more smoothly.
