SanRu Cocktail

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.
