The Adonis is one of the classic cocktails that makes an excellent aperitif. It's an easy drink to remember, just think of a Perfect Martini with sherry instead of gin.

The cocktail is named after what is called the first Broadway musical. Adonis opened in 1884 at New York's Bijou, ran for over 600 performances, and starred Henry E. Dixey.
