Sherry Cobbler Amontillado Sherry Sugar Orange Slices Iced Tropical Cocktail

Like so many classic cocktails, the origin of the Sherry Cobbler has been lost in time. This All-American drink’s earliest known recording is in a 1838 diary entry by a Canadian traveler visiting the United States. However, it didn’t gain international attention until Charles Dickens wrote about the cocktail in The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit in 1842.

The Sherry Cobbler simply combines sherry, muddled orange slices, sugar, crushed ice, and a straw. The straw is key since the cobbler is credited with introducing the drinking straw into modern consciousness. It went on to be one of the most popular mixed drinks in the nineteenth century.
