A delicious drink to try next time you’re at the cocktail bar, with some interesting historical tidbits behind it.  For instance, it’s responsible for the ubiquity of the shaker you see in any bar today — it was called the cobbler shaker in its inception:

In David Embury’s 1948 bartender’s guide The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks it was noted that the great bartender Harry Johnson once said (c. 1880) that the cobbler was “without doubt the most popular beverage in this country, with ladies as well as gentlemen.” You see in the mid-1800s the cobbler was the drink of choice, a symbol of its era, it outranked all the fixes, fizzes, juleps, sours and cocktails of its time. It was the trendiest, most exciting drink one could have and it wasn’t just by a matter of chance, this drink had everything a drink could have going for it at the time.
