Its origins are not known in detail but The Sherry Cobbler emerged during the 1830s and became one of the most popular mixed drinks in the 19th century in the United States.
The original recipe is orange and lemon blended with simple syrup, shaken with ice and sherry in a cocktail shaker, and strained into a glass filled with crushed ice. We can also add pineapple slices or juices.
The earliest known mention is from an 1838 diary of a Canadian traveler to the United States, Katherine Jane Ellice, but it becomes really famous when Charles Dickens included the drink in The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit
