Following in the footsteps of the Piña Colada, which was given the frozen treatment in the 1950s, and the Margarita, which got slushed in the ‘70s, the Sherry Cobbler is the latest drink to be tossed in the blender. Rob Kreuger’s three-ingredient version hews close to the simplicity of the original, but replaces the traditional garnish—fresh berries and mint—with a brandied cherry and an orange half-wheel.
