Of the stirred aperitif drinks of the 19th century that involve sherry, there are really two archetypes that are riffed on ad nauseum: the Bamboo and the Adonis. Both offer clues to their body type. The Bamboo is lean and tough, the Adonis, a sort of classical beefcake—the brawnier of the two. The drinks, even when variations are applied, still split in two different directions. The Adonis was named after the 1884 Broadway burlesque show by William Gill called Adonis, which is often credited as the first-ever Broadway musical. While the production enjoyed its popularity, the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City created a cocktail in its honor, using a base of sherry together with orange bitters and sweet vermouth. To this day it remains one of the most successful sherry-based aperitif cocktails in the classic canon.
