The “cobbler” refers to a dessert, a drink, and an occupation – but we are focusing on the brandy cobbler, a satisfying cocktail that has existed for over a century.  The interesting aspect of cobblers is that they don’t subscribe to a rigid recipe, as one can make a cobbler with all sorts of liquor or fruit.

Instead, it is sort of a “rough idea” of a cocktail, that is meant to be enjoyed with all sorts of variations.  Some mixologists choose to not even mix fruit in their cobblers, and to only have it involved as a garnish. In earlier iterations, cobblers were almost always wine-based drinks with ice – but the cobbler has certainly evolved to mean many different things in modern times.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon of superfine sugar (often in cube form)
  • 2 ounces of brandy (can vary)
  • 3 ounces of club soda
  • 1 ounce of curacao, kirsch, simple syrup, or liqueur
  • Slice of fruit

Instructions:

  1. The first choice is whether to build the wine in a cocktail glass or pour the ingredients into a shaker over ice, and shake.
  2. Many people choose to muddle fruit for a cobbler, while others choose to garnish it.
  3. The sugar cube should dissolve nicely in the soda, and you can choose how to sweeten the cocktail with syrup, liqueur or other options, depending on your preference.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Old-fashioned glass

The fact is that cobblers in general can be prepared differently, with fruits ranging from orange, to lemon, to pineapple.  One can even make a rum cobbler in place of brandy, but technically, a brandy cobbler is a “true” cobbler. The brandy cobbler is not the most popular cocktail, but is certainly a throwback to the late 1800s and 1900s that many can appreciate.
