Its name and ingredients pay homage to the Spanish influence in its birthplace of New York City's Waldorf Astoria hotel. This elegant drink combines sweet sherry, aromatic red vermouth, and a dash of orange bitters for a complex and well-balanced flavor profile. The sherry adds a nutty and slightly sweet element, while the vermouth brings a herbaceous and spiced note. The addition of a dash of orange bitters adds a layer of citrus and bitterness to round out the drink. Served chilled, the Adonis cocktail is a sophisticated and refreshing choice for any occasion.
