Jeff Beachbum Berry conceived of this recipe as an “intermission drink”—a light refresher intended to be consumed in between full-strength cocktails. The name pays tribute to David Wondrich, a proponent of this practice, and incidentally, the first guest to request a sherry drink at Berry’s famed New Orleans tiki bar, Latitude 29.
