Champagne Cobbler

Champagne Cobbler cocktail with lemon, orange, simple syrup, and sparkling wine

The Champagne Cobbler is a riff on the ancient Sherry Cobbler, and its origins are likewise shrouded in mystery. The recipe is at least one hundred years old, and probably closer to two.

The recipe is flexible; even though it’s called a Champagne Cobbler, it works with any sparkling wine you prefer, however sweet or dry you like it. And you can use any berry you like as a garnish; even the tartest berries will soak up the alcohol and sugar for a tasty treat at the end of the drink.

Older recipes called for granulated sugar instead of simple syrup. You can use regular table sugar, but we prefer simple syrup as it’s easier to incorporate. If you do, reduce the amount of granulated sugar to half and add a bit of water before you muddle.

Gently muddle the citrus slices and simple syrup at the bottom of a short glass. Fill the glass with crushed ice, top with sparkling wine, and garnish with fresh mint and in-season berries.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
