About the Sherry Cobbler Cocktail

Chill down with this old-school low-alcohol sipper.

Ingredients in the Sherry Cobbler Cocktail

  • .25 oz Simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
  • 3 oz Dry amontillado sherry (Lustau)
  • 1 Orange half-wheel

Garnish: Orange wheel

Glass: Highball

How to make the Sherry Cobbler Cocktail

Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake brutally (this will muddle the orange) and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Pierce another orange wheel with a straw and insert both into the drink. (Note: If using a sweeter sherry, use less sugar in the simple syrup.)

  1. This looks like a really nice way to introduce someone to sherry. Personally, I’m really happy with just the Amontillado, which was often the aperitif of choice in my family when I was growing up. (Seriously, my parents introduced me to wine when I was about 10).

  2. Marsha Lay says

    This looks so easy to make to sip all day in the shade in the summer heat. Simple cocktails are often the best & this is such a nice way to try out Amontillado sherry.
