Last-Straw Cobbler

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

The first cobblers, thought to have been invented in the 1830s, consisted of sherry, sugar, fruit and lots of shaved ice. Ice remains the hallmark of a good cobbler, even high-proof versions like this one (which, Philip Ward advises, should be served with a wide straw).
