canon's sherry cobbler

1 oz Oloroso Sherry (2 oz Lustau)
1/4 oz Patxaran (1/2 oz Atxa)
1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur (1/2 oz Luxardo)
2 dash Angostura Bitters (4 light dash)

Shake with ice, strain into a Cobbler cup or wine glass, fill with crushed ice, and garnish with an orange slice, mint leaves, and seasonal berries (mint sprigs and an orange twist).
After my bar shift two Sundays ago, I reached for the Canon Cocktail Book. There, I spotted a delightful sounding Sherry Cobbler that seemed a bit on the small side especially for a nightcap. After doubling the recipe, Cobbler gave forth grape, mint, and orange aromas. The grape continued on into the sip where it mingled with hints of cherry and dark berry, and the swallow offered nutty, coffee, and cherry notes with a clove spice finish.
