After a long winter of imbibing strong drink we are ready for spring drinking and
something on the lighter side. Reaching back into cocktail history we come across the
“Cobbler” a simple concoction of Sherry wine, varied fresh citrus, berries and a bit of
sugar. The cobbler was one of the most popular drinks of the late 19th century with
numerous variations and recipes. It is a drink that can be embellished with whatever
fresh garnish options you have. Some like a few sprigs of mint, some raspberries, some
use pineapple while orange slices are most common. It is a drink that will adapt to
whatever you have around. Below we share with you a traditional version of the Sherry Cobbler and encourage you to have fun experimenting to personalize the drink to your own taste. The other great thing about the Sherry Cobbler is that it is a lower alcohol cocktail that won’t weigh you down or leave you foggy the next day.
