The Roosevelt Room’s Sherry Cobbler

A blend of sherries builds a more complex base for this cobbler recipe.

For the Sherry Cobbler at The Roosevelt Room in Austin, Texas, co-owners and operators Justin Lavenue and Dennis Gobis use a blend of sherries for a more complex base. “Manzanilla is bright, dry, high in acid, and has delicious notes of salted almonds. Amontillado is bolder, richer in flavor, and has deeper notes of hazelnuts and oak,” says Lavenue. Cinnamon syrup adds sweetness and spice to tie it all together.
