Basically a fortified wine. Usually on the sweet side, although you can also find dry sherrys. The brand I like best comes from the San Sebastian winery in St. Augustine, FL.

Strong. An aquired taste. Don't buy a cheap one.

I'll take port over sherry.

But drinking is drinking, and that's a good thing.

Sherry, you can't be serious.

I don't recommend the 15 year old cooking Sherry in the back of my fridge.

Oh, and I'm more partial to ports and madeiras for my digestif needs, myself.

Sherry is best left for cooking. Port and Madeira are more better.

Frankly, Madeira, I don't give a damn.

As a kid I used to steal sips of my grandmother's Harvey's Bristol Cream (sherry), that she drank on the rocks.

Still like it every once in a while.

Reminds me a bit of the slightly sweet muscatel (sp?) that is served at communion in Episcopal churches.

I thought that Harvey's Bristol Cream was a bust improver

Stuff is nasty but I always have a bottle of Harvey's Bristol Cream on hand. The missus likes it and it is most excellent for cooking with. My ma's sherry trifles were the best... and you get a wee buzz from them. winking smiley

A good sherry can be really excellent, a fine "gentleman's drink". I personally like a number of them far more than any of the Ports I've tried, which are always Very sweet, too much so for my taste. A decent wine vendor (or even many liquor depts in grocery stores now) will have a number of sherries, from quite dry Fino's, to sweet Oloroso's.

It's a complex-tasting drink made from an intricate process of blending different aged wines; some in the mix can be very old and add much richness and character. Not just "dessert wines", and no more "just for cooking" than any good vintage wine would be.

And btw, for a moderately cheap price -and wide availability- Harvey's is not bad at all for a fairly sweet cream sherry.
