Nobody really knows the back story of this sherry-based cocktail from the 19th century, but we do know that it quenches our thirst for all things low-proof and lightly bittered.

• 1.5 oz dry sherry
• 1.5 oz dry vermouth
• 1 dash Angostura bitters
• 1 dash orange bitters

Place all the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice, and stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a lemon twist. Serves 1.
