AKA Cobbler

from Death & Co

  • 1 teaspoon Simple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
  • 2 twists of Lemon Peel
  • 1 Strawberry
  • 1 cube of White Sugar
  • 1.5 ounces Siembra Azul Blanco Tequila
  • .5 ounce Jalapeño-Infused Siembra Azul Blanco Tequila
  • .5 ounce Lustau East India Solera Sherry
  • 0.5 Strawberry (Garnish)

In a shaker, muddle the simple syrup, maraschino liqueur, lemon twists, strawberry, and sugar cube. Add the tequilas and sherry and whip (shake with a few pieces of crushed ice, just until the ingredients are incorporated). Dump into a double rocks glass and top with crushed ice. Garnish with the half strawberry and serve with a straw.

ALEX DAY, 2008 Like sangria, cobblers were traditionally a means for making cheap wine better by fortifying it with a spirit and adding muddled fruit. I took the classic cobbler formula and removed most of the wine, using just a bit of sherry as a nod to the original recipe.—AD
