PX Sweet Tea

Derek Brown, Columbia Room | Washington, D.C.

Simply sherry, sugar and citrus, shaken, poured over crushed ice and slurped through a straw, the original Sherry Cobbler is thought to have originated sometime in the 1820s or early 1830s. But like most 19th century drinks, its origins are foggy. This black tea and PX sherry infused version is Derek Brown’s play on the original.

Garnish: seasonal berries and mint
