The classic Sherry Cobbler gets an extra boozy summer update in this refresher from Steven Brewer, the beverage director at modern Indian restaurant Babu Ji. Although a pour of vodka ups the ABV, watermelon juice mellows the mix so it’s easy to sip anytime, anywhere. When we say go crazy with the garnish, we mean it: Anything that’s in season is up for grabs. Load it up with fruits and herbs like blackberries, raspberries, cucumbers, citrus and mint.
1 Cup White sugar
1 Cup Water
- Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves, then immediately take the saucepan off the heat.
- Let cool, then pour into a container (a Mason jar works nicely) and store in the refrigerator for up to one month.
