Test Kitchen-Approved

Author Notes: Bone-dry and well-chilled Manzanilla sherry is southern Spain's perfect cocktail all on its own, perfect with salty almonds, a little sliver of jamón Ibérico or spicy shrimp. It should be wrong to mess with such a delicate thing, but my Andalusian friend Xesca does so with abandon in this recipe, and I think she is onto something.Teresa Parker
