How to Make a Sherry Cobbler

We're more than a little crazy about wine at the restaurant where I work. So, it stands to reason that some of the cocktails we have draw inspiration from the wine world.

For example, we recently picked up several bottles of fino sherry. At first, I wasn't sure what to think of the venerable fortified wine. But now that I've had a chance to mix up some things with it, I may make sherry cocktails my drink of choice all spring and summer this year.

The odds are pretty good that you haven't had much in the way of sherry, unless you found out about (and then drank way too much of) sweet and nutty Harvey's Bristol Cream sherry back in college. Harvey's and fino sherry are on different ends of the wide spectrum of sherries available.
