Sherry Berry Cobbler

Starring Palo Cortado

The Cobbler was a simple cocktail usually containing fruit, simply shaken with spirit, served over ice with a straw.  The Sherry Cobbler is thought to have been the most popular drink in the world from the 1830’s to 1860’s.  A couple key inventions helped lead to the success of this drink.  The first being ice machines that made small cubes referred to as cobbles hence the cocktail’s name “Cobbler”.  Another new invention was the straw, which allowed you to drink the cocktail from below the ice cobbles.

Pairing Palo Cortado with food

"Meditation wine," ideal to be slowly appreciated, to become totally immersed in the full range of well balanced sensations this exceptional wine has to offer. It may accompany nuts, cured cheeses and, at the table, the more concentrated consommés, stews and gelatinous meats (bull's tail, cheeks...)
