Hey, I'd love a sherry and coke...

Saturday Night, Seville, 2am. We are full of jamon, tortilla, some sensational matador-fortifying giblet stew and crammed in the corner of a small, backstreet bar run by Sevilla’s numero uno balding middle-aged folk singer, El Padrigal. An impromptu foot-stamping flamenco jam is in full-swing as El P asks for the order: “Quatro jerez dulce!” I shout across the guitars. Ceremoniously the great man half-fills four copas from the barrel in the corner, dispensing an amber coloured elixir, only stopping to top the glasses up with Coca-Cola before slamming them down on the counter. Aah, Sherry Cola. Just like the Kinks used to sing about.

Sorry to burst your bubble but Cherry Cola was the Kinks' way of not advertising the original lyrics of Coca Cola.

I have found that a medium sherry and diet coke tastes just like a sweet vermouth. That's how I got this link through Google. xx

Enjoy the Sherry Cola, I am!
