The Refreshing Raspberry Cobbler

Sherry may be the dusty bottle you imagine to be in the back of your grandparent’s drinks cabinet, but this year sherry has made a comeback as the bartender’s choice for cocktails. The perfect accompaniment to tapas, and spicy foods, this Spanish fortified wine has been overlooked for too long. Typically, a dry sherry works well with salty or vinegary foods, while sweeter sherries can be matched well with desserts, but they also make divine cocktails to impress at parties.

This Raspberry Sherry Cobbler is the perfect summer drink. Fruity, refreshing and filled with ice, this is a great beverage to sip while catching some rays. It’s simple to shake together in a few minutes, and showcases the beauty of a good Manzanilla Sherry. Originally popular in 19th century America, this recipe offers a modern take on the classic sherry cobbler.
