How to Make a Sherry Cobbler
4 ounces fino or amontillado sherry
1 rounded barspoon sugar
1 1/4-inch thick slice of half an orange
Shake well with crushed ice. Pour directly into a tall glass, adding more crushed ice to fill. Garnish lavishly with fresh seasonal fruit, and add a straw.
-Add a wedge of lemon.
-Add a chunk of pineapple.
-Muddle the fruit and sugar before adding the sherry.
-Add a barspoon or two of liqueur. Maraschino is quite intriguing. A nice orange liqueur is a natural. Or toss in a few drops of absinthe if you dare.
