Forget ideas of Harvey’s Bristol Cream and your granny’s drinks cabinet. Fino is a dry, pale white sherry which is a big hit with foodies and worlds away from the sherry you might’ve tried in the past. Sherry is made in Jerez in Andalusia, southern Spain. There, dry white sherry like Fino is often drunk in a rebujito, a popular cocktail which mixes Fino sherry with a soft drink mixer, like lemonade or tonic water. The rebujito is a party drink, popular with festival goers at the annual Ferias in Jerez and Seville.
Making a Fino and tonic couldn’t be simpler. It’s the perfect affordable cocktail for summer drinks parties orbarbecuesas you don’t need lots of different ingredients. Just stick to the ratio of Fino to tonic we’ve given below and scale up to cater for a big crowd. We love to serve Fino and tonic in pretty cut-glass pitchers, over plenty of ice.
Transport yourself to the sultry climes of Southern Spain with a zesty glass of Fino and tonic. It takes 5 minutes to make and is bound to become your new favourite summer drink.
