A Fraction of Sherry

There’s plenty of drinking in Ethan Canin’s wonderfully magisterial novel, A Doubter’s Almanac.  In Part One, sherry and bourbon flow freely, so that provided an easy pairing.  Then there’s the brilliant mathematician, Milo Andret, who looms over the novel’s pages.  Since he was as good at souring relationships as he was at solving theorems, I rounded out the whole with the startlingly tart kumquat.

A Fraction of Sherry
1.5 oz bourbon
.75 oz dry sherry
.25 oz simple syrup
1 kumquat
Muddle the kumquat with everything.  Shake with ice.  Finely strain into a chilled glass.
Garnish with sliced kumquat.
