The Dunaway

The Dunaway 1.000
Spirits Mar 23, 2011

This is a wonderful example of how sherry can take center stage in a cocktail. The original calls for fino sherry, but Spirits columnist Jason Wilson finds that amontillado works well, too.

Misty Kalkofen, its creator, says the drink is sassy and sophisticated, like actor Faye Dunaway; hence the name.

Cynar is an interesting bittersweet Italian amaro distilled from artichokes. As always, Wilson reminds us that maraschino liqueur is not the syrup from a jar of maraschino cherries.


Servings: 1
Ingredients
  • Ice
  • 2 1/4 ounces fino or amontillado sherry
  • 1/2 ounce Cynar
  • 1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • Twist of lemon peel, for garnish

Directions

Fill a mixing glass halfway with ice. Add the sherry, Cynar, maraschino liqueur and bitters. Stir vigorously, then strain into a chilled cocktail (martini) glass.

Twist the lemon peel over the drink to release its essence, then drop it in as a garnish.
