Earl Grey Cobbler Mocktail


What is a Cobbler?

Cobblers are a very early style of cocktail that are said to have originated in the US. The classic Cobbler was a mix of sherry, a small amount of sweetener, and crushed ice topped with seasonal fruit. Interestingly, it’s the Sherry Cobbler and its mountain of crushed ice that is credited with popularizing the drinking straw.

This Cobbler mocktail variation features chilled earl grey tea in place of wine or spirit, with a touch of simple syrup and some muddled citrus. The result is a wonderfully refreshing drink that pairs well with a summer afternoon and a good book. Top with fresh mint and berries and enjoy! (I used a raspberry, a blackberry, a physalis or “golden berry”).

Can I substitute another tea?

Sure! I’ve made it with a variety of teas including Earl Grey, chamomile, and even an awesome caffeine-free citrusy, minty tea from Tazo called Wild Sweet Orange. You can also muddle berries or other fruit directly into the cocktail, or swap the muddled orange slices for lemon or lime. It’s a versatile template that makes for delicious and light drinks, whether fortified with spirits or not.
