3/4 oz Beefeater Gin
1/2 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Lustau Amontillado Sherry
1/4 oz Orgeat
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass. Fill with crushed ice, "float" 1/4 oz Cherry Heering, garnish with a paper parasol and a cherry, and add a straw.
For my drink at Backbar, I asked bartender Kat Lamper for the Sailor's Delight that was a drink of the day earlier in the week. The recipe was created by Dan Braganca as his riff on Trader Vic's Fog Cutter. Instead of a light floatable ingredient like sherry in the classic or aquavit in the Viking Fog Cutter, Dan opted for the heavier Cherry Heering that created a Sunrise effect as it cascaded down the crushed ice like the liqueur in a Bramble. Moreover, instead of a Sunrise, perhaps a Sunset would be more appropriate, for Dan named this after the historical nautical saying, "Red sky at night, sailors’ delight; red sky at morning, sailors take warning."
