Cocktail Inspiration:

Fall is a season to cherish. Especially living in the frozen tundra of Minnesota. I wanted to make a cocktail that captured the true essence of fall. What I came up with was a delicious Vodka Sherry Cobbler. Using Wodka Vodka for a base for this drink was a great jumping off point. Using a versatile base like Wodka Vodka made it easy to capture the flavors of fall. Lustau Pedro Ximenez Sherry lends a hand to the body of this cocktail. I then used equal parts apple cinnamon shrub, and ginger syrup to provide the fat. Last but not least a nip of lemon juice to add the acidity we need. Shaking all this up leaves us with a delicious fun balanced cocktail that will have you smuckering your lips for more! Throw on your favorite flannel and enjoy!
