3/4 oz Teremana Reposado Tequila (Cimarron)
3/4 oz Fino Sherry (Tio Pepe)
3/4 oz Amaro Montenegro
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Orgeat

Shake with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
Two Sundays ago, I returned to the online set of recipe flashcards from Raised by Wolves in San Diego and landed on the Cumulonimbus. TripAdvisor mentioned this drink in October 2022, and I was lured in for orgeat and the almond-like notes of Fino sherry have worked so well together in drinks like the Paradise Lost and Fino Island. In the glass, the Cumulonimbus floated to the nose with clouds of woody spice, nutty, and clementine aromas. Next, a creamy lemon and orange sip drifted into tequila, almond, and peach-orange flavors on the swallow.
