Insights from other parts of the world are welcome, too, of course.

1 1/2 oz Amontillado sherry (Australian)
1/4 oz black currant cordial
I like this. It seemed to me that the sherry had a bit of acidity that needed some sweet to round it out and the gin adds some herbal elements as well as some punch. I tried adding some Scrappy's orange bitters but that took things in the wrong direction. Still some more layers might be nice. Can't figure out what, though. Hops? Cardamom?

This was an 'I wonder what this'll be like' thing, not measured out, so all I can say is that a large shot each of cordial and Buffalo Trace were added to a large glass of cider.
