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).
2 strawberries, quartered, plus 1 strawberry for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the quartered strawberries in the falernum. Add the tequila and bitters; shake well. Pour into a double rocks glass or wineglass, top with crushed ice and garnish with a strawberry.
