At Voysey in Portland, Oregon, Katie Stipe’s Sherry Cobbler riff incorporates oat orgeat, a more sustainable and easier-to-make alternative to the traditionally almond-based ingredient. A finishing spritz of rose water echoes the floral notes of the syrup, tying the low-proof drink all together.

- 3/4 ounce oat orgeat (see Editor’s Note)
