Patriotic both in its red, white, and blue color scheme and in the style of cocktail — the sherry cobbler was extremely popular during the 1880s, a period that's oft considered America's "golden age of cocktails" — this refreshing sipper is practically screaming to be included in your Fourth of July spread.
Domaine de Canton, a sweet and spicy ginger liqueur, gives this lower-alcohol cocktail a kick without being heavy handed; lemon adds just enough acidity to balance it all out, and Sherry provides a crisp, dry base. All in all, it's one of the best cocktails I've had in a long while; I highly suggest you try it for yourself.
