Back when sherry was king, the cobbler was a classic cocktail and everyone was drinking it. I like to do variations using local ingredients like blueberry and thyme. Thyme is one of my favorite herbs. It’s easy to grow, it’s very fresh, and it almost has a citric element. It has a great nose, and it pairs really well with fresh blueberries. The sherry element adds a big backbone to the drink, and I like to add a good vegetal vodka, like the locally made Copper Horse.
