Black Cow is uniquely matched with nutty flavours from the Amontillado sherry, teamed with gentle nutmeg and cinnamon spice from the pear syrup. The bitter balance comes from tonic water to lengthen the serve.

The caramelised pear adds a sweetness and gentle fruit flavour, matching the richness of the sherry and creamy textured vodka. Add a little Black Cow Cheese to linger those nut flavours a bit more, and extra creamy mouth feel!
