Jeff "Beachbum" Berry created this tribute to SAVEUR contributing editor David Wondrich, who recommends following the first boozy cocktail of the evening with a low-alcohol "intermission" drink. It's based on the Adonis, a pre-prohibition recipe that is equal parts sherry and vermouth, with a dash of bitters.
