Tristan Willey’s low-proof variation on the Negroni replaces the gin with manzanilla sherry and dials back the Campari for a salty, lightly bitter take on the Italian classic that does not want for complexity. “Dry sherry has such a strong backbone,” says Willey. “It lends so much to a drink while asking so little of the drinker.”
