Baldwin’s (Easy) Sherry Colada

Ran Duan, Baldwin Bar | Boston

At Baldwin Bar, located above Boston’s Sichuan Garden restaurant, bartender Ran Duan serves his Sherry Colada, a mixture of palo cortado, manzanilla, and amontillado sherries, plus pineapple juice, house-made coconut cream, and lemon juice. Here he offers this “easy” version, which requires only one sherry—amontillado— cutting the ingredient list down to four without sacrificing craveability.
