Sherry comes in many styles that vary in body and color. This cocktail calls for amontillado, which is light and naturally dry -- a savory contrast to sweet, seasonal fruit. Chill the concoction as you prepare dinner. The fruit will set, and the fortified wine will take on its flavor.


  • 1 bottle (750 mL) amontillado or other medium-dry sherry

  • 1 cup Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur

  • 2 cups sliced stone fruit, such as apricots, nectarines, peaches, and plums

  • Ice cubes


  1. Combine sherry, Cointreau, and fruit in a pitcher. Refrigerate for at least 45 minutes.

  2. Serve over ice.
