The Sherry Cobbler is a classic 19th century cocktail that still feels fresh and modern today.
You can use any sherry you like – but if you’re using a very sweet type, like Pedro Ximenez, you may want to reduce the amount of syrup or sugar you add.
If you’re using granulated sugar, keep in mind that it’s sweeter than simple syrup. Use a bit over half of the measurement given for syrup if you use sugar.
Muddle oranges and syrup (or sugar) at the bottom of your shaker. Add sherry and ice and shake. Strain into a tall glass filled with crushed ice, and garnish with citrus wheels, seasonal berries, mint, and/or a dusting of powdered sugar, plus a straw.
