  • ¾ ounce tequila reposado
  • ¾ ounce aged rum aguardiente, preferably Gustoso

  • ½ ounce Oloroso sherry
  • Mint sprig, maraschino cherry and grated nutmeg, to garnish

Step 1In a cocktail shaker, combine the horchata cream, tequila, rum, syrup and bitters.

Step 2Add crushed ice, cover and shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds.

Step 3Strain into a chilled Collins glass and fill with more crushed ice.

Step 4Float the sherry on top of the cocktail, then top with a scoop of crushed ice so it’s mounded slightly over the the rim.
