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.
- 3⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 3⁄4 cup simple syrup
- 1⁄4 cup Averna
- 1⁄2 cup oloroso sherry
- 1 1⁄2 cups blanco tequila

- 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.
