Trinidad Cobbler


This fruity cobbler recipe was the winning cocktail at an Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge. Devised by Elizabeth Mickiewicz, the drink marries nutty sherry with tropical juices, a tinge of cinnamon-pineapple syrup and a healthy dose of bitters.

  • 1 oz. amontillado sherry
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz. fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 oz. pineapple-cinnamon syrup
