A classic martini styled cocktail, the Barbara West is sure to please those who love the original martini. Starting with fruit flavors provided by the sherry, and finishing with a dry mouthfeel, this is a great drink for after work while you are reading the paper. (Which coincidently is what I did. How very old mannish of me.)
