1 1/2 oz Lustau Amontillado Sherry
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Simple Syrup

Shake with ice, and strain into a Highball glass with ice and 2 oz Champagne (Chandon sparkling wine).
Two Fridays ago, I reached for The NoMad Cocktail Book and spotted the Cortez that could utilize our opened bottle of sparkling wine. The Cortez read like a sherry and cinnamon French 75, so I was intrigued. Once served, it conjured a cinnamon and nutty aroma. Next, a carbonated lemon and grape sip gave way to a nutty sherry and cinnamon swallow. Like the French 75, it was simple and elegant.
