Sherry Cocktails

Did you know there’s a Secret Sherry Society? Neither did I, but it exists, and among other endeavors, it apparently provides guys like me with sherry cocktail recipes.  From the Society –

The leaders of the Secret Sherry Society selected these drinks through a specific tasting and pairing process. The society, formed by a group of individuals whose primary concern was the artful dissemination of the secrets of their favorite beverage, Sherry, is a lively bunch of Sherry experts that travel around the country sharing their passion for their favorite beverage.

    Have you tried any of these? A sherry margarita strikes me as an odd beverage.
