Remember the Alimony

Dan Greenbaum, Diamond Reef | Brooklyn, NY

This is one of the best of the modern sherry cocktails out there. Dan Greenbaum created it in 2012 at the short-lived New York City cocktail bar The Beagle. It continues to be served—but maybe only because I keep ordering it and writing about it.
