Pineapple Oloroso Cobbler

What’s cool about cobblers: they’re full of fruit but don’t taste “fruity” in the sweet, simple sense. The combination of raw sugar and oloroso sherry, and perhaps their association with pineapple, makes this drink taste like a luscious dark rum, or like a rich, caramelized pineapple tart, yet not sweet at all. Totally addictive. — From Be Your Own Bartender: A Surefire Guide to Finding (and Making) Your Perfect Cocktail by Carey Jones and John McCarthy. Buy this book from W. W.
