Calypso Cobbler

Starring Amontillado

The Calypso Cobbler draws on the most important origins of Sherry's use in cocktails, the Cobbler, to create a drink that is both comforting but adds new flavors to make the experience engaging. Because of this combination of familiar and adventurous, cocktail and sherry fanatics enjoy this cocktail as much as a novice to the category. Every ingredient in the recipe compliments the sherries and emphasizes their character for a cobbler with a unique Caribbean and Calypso feel.
