The Bittersweet Bates Cocktail
Cheers to Mr. Bates (Brendan Coyle), a man with a bitter past, for winning the heart of sweet Anna (Joanne Froggatt). The loving couple is now taking care of their toddler – and the Crawleys – in the film.
Cocktails, New Years
Pedro Ximenez Sherry
In a short glass filled with cracked ice, add the Amaro Nonino, the sherry and a couple of dashes of orange bitters. (Angostura bitters works well here too.)
Twist the orange peel to express its oils into the glass then drop it in as a garnish.
