There are many cocktails by the name of “Tuxedo” though this recipe was the first and is the most common in US bars today. The salinity and nuttiness of the sherry is a perfect marriage with classic London Dry Gin. Feel free to substitute the coastal influenced Manzanilla style sherry but we don’t recommend trying to substitute any of the other varieties as it would dramatically change the cocktail’s flavor profile.
This cocktail is supposedly named after a precursor to the country club in New Jersey called Tuxedo Park. (Spirits/Cocktails)
