This is nothing more than a sherr-ified large-format Margarita. Unexpected but natural lovers—oloroso sherry and tequila—are married together with lime, sugar, and a splash of Averna for a rich, autumn sour spiced up with nutmeg.


  • 34 cup fresh lime juice
  • 34 cup simple syrup
  • 14 cup Averna
  • 12 cup oloroso sherry
  • 1 12 cups blanco tequila
  • Candied or sugar-dusted lime wedges, for garnish
  • Grated nutmeg, for garnish


Step 1

Combine lime juice, simple syrup, Averna, sherry, and tequila in a large punch bowl. Add large cubes of ice or a few generous scoops of ice, then garnish with lime wedges and grated nutmeg.
