Flor de España


I’m non-committal when it comes to alcoholic drinks. I’m not loyal to any one drink, not even on a given night. But last summer I discovered a cocktail that I love to go back to called Flor de España.

Served at Sra. Martinez, it’s made with Oloroso Sherry, Johnnie Walker Black, egg whites, lemon juice and all-spice honey. It has a hint of sweetness and subtle sour notes. It’s smooth and foamy on top from the egg whites. It’s just good.

Not being able to have it that often makes it all the more special, but at this bar it’s even hard to stay loyal to Flor. There are many great choices on the menu and the bartenders are knowledgeable and happy to recommend something for your taste. On a couple of recent visits when it wasn’t too busy, I left my drink choice up to Rob only to be surprised with a cocktail more delicious than the last.

It’s a unique place, this tiny bar.
