This potent, sherry-based cocktail is derived from one described in Jacinto Sanfeliu Brucart's El Bar: Arte y Evolucion del Cocktail (Madrid, 1949). The head bartender at the swanky Palace Hotel in Madrid, Sanfeliu Brucart sweetened his SanRu with Cherry Heering, a cherry-flavored liqueur from Denmark.
- 1 oz. amontillado sherry
- 1 oz. Dubonnet Rouge
- 1 oz. gin, preferably Beefeater or Tanqueray
- 1⁄2 tsp. Cherry Heering
