Sherry Berry Cocktail Recipe

When it’s still over 90 degrees for the foreseeable future, it calls for Sherry Berry Cocktails on repeat! If you’re not familiar with sherry cobblers or sherry in general, you are in for a treat.

My, Ashley Conway’s, first experience with sherry was reading Edgar Allen Poe’s The Cask of Amontillado in 9th grade. And then I didn’t come across it again for another 12 years. I saw amontillado sherry on a spirits list at a cocktail bar in SanFrancisco and could only think of literature class. Unlike Poe’s writing, Amontillado Sherry is dry and nutty, ok so maybe it’s exactly like Poe’s writing! Needless to say, I loved it.

Sherry cocktails are perfect for sipping by the pool, at a picnic, or just on the couch enjoying the air conditioning. Since summer is berry season, I decided to use a variety of fresh, plump berries to create this Sherry Berry cocktail recipe.

Berry Sherry Cobbler Cocktail

    • Serves 1

    Ingredients

    • 4 ounces dry sherry such as Amontillado
    • 4 raspberries
    • 3 blackberries
    • 3/4 fluid ounce lemon juice
    • 1/2 fluid ounce orange juice
    • 1/4 fluid ounce simple syrup
    • garnish with orange wheel, berries & mint

    Instructions

    • Add sherry, berries, juices and simple syrup into a shaker.
    • Muddle the berries.
    • Add ice and shake quickly, about 10 seconds.
    • Strain into a tall glass with crushed ice.
    • Top with more crushed ice to rise above the glass.
    • Garnish with orange wheel, berries & mint. Smack the mint on the side of the glass to release the oils before garnishing.

    Sherry is a delicious fortified wine (sometimes oxidized). Because of the aging, fortification, and the purposeful oxidization, it has a nutty characteristic with rich fruit notes. It’s perfect for mixing in the classic cocktail the Sherry Cobbler. The Sherry Cobbler is a refreshing, long drink with a variety of fruit mixed in, not far off from a Pimm’s cup.
