Jerry Thomas described a cobbler as a “delicious potation” that was easy to make but surprisingly hard to make look good. Harry Johnson said in 1882: “This drink is without doubt the most popular beverage in the country, with ladies as well as gentlemen. It is a very refreshing drink for old and young.” In this recipe I have twisted the original slightly by removing the sugar and using Re’al Blue Agave Nectar instead which blends better with the sherry and gives a richer texture to the drink. Enjoy!
- 60ml medium sherry
- 10ml Re’al Blue Agave Syrup
- 2 wedges of orange
Place the fruit in the bottom of a shaker, add the Agave syrup and muddle, then add the sherry and a scoop of ice. Shake and double strain into a goblet filled with crushed ice. Garnish with berries a mint leaf and a sprinkling of icing sugar.
