From the classics like sherry cobbler to newer inventions like the cabana club cocktail, there’s something that everyone will love. 

Dust off those fancy cocktail glasses because you’ll need them for these fantastic sherry cocktails!

1. Sherry Cobbler 

The sherry cobbler is an old cocktail that originated in the early 1800s and popularized the idea of drinking through a straw. 

With a heavy pour of amaretto sherry, a dash of simple syrup, and a few orange slices, it’s sweet and a little citrusy.

The classic sherry cobbler is the perfect place to start if you are curious about sherry cocktails. 

Once you master the classic, you can move on to more complex takes on this classic, like the cranberry cobbler (or whip up your own).  

Garnish it with lemon, berries, and mint, and don’t forget the straw!

2. Rebujito 

Move over, Sangria. While sangria is a popular Spanish drink across the globe, the rebujito is picking up steam. 

It’s a festival drink popular at the running of the bulls.

The rebujito is light and refreshing, with one part sherry, two parts bubbly lemon-lime soda, and a dash of mint. 

The rebujito is worth checking out if you are hunting for a light summer drink incorporating sherry. 

3. Fun and Fruity Sherry Cobbler Cocktail 

The sherry cobbler cocktail is a classic, and this fun and fruity version of the classic is lighter than the original.

Muddling the orange slices before adding in the sherry, berries, and simple syrup more citrusy and delicious. 

It’s similar to a screwdriver but sweet and more complex.

Garnish it with lemon slices and berries, and serve on a hot summer day. 

4. Sherry Old-Fashioned 

Old-fashioneds incorporate rich bourbon, and this twist on a classic earns a nutty and fruity finish with sherry. 

This cocktail recipe adds a dash of sherry to boost sweetness.

It yields a cocktail with rich and robust flavor notes that are delicious. 

Finish it with a dash of chocolate bitters (yum!), bourbon smoked sugar simple syrup, and garnish with orange. 

5. Flor de Jerez 

The flor de jerez is a tart cocktail perfect for sipping slowly from a fancy glass.

It’s a complex cocktail that is potent (hence the slow sipping), tart, and slightly sweet. 

It pairs dark rum with apricot liqueur and a dash of sherry for sweetness.

It’s a very potent cocktail, so it’s best to sip it slowly to appreciate all those complex flavor notes. 

Garnish it with Angostura bitters, lemon juice, and simple syrup for a tart cocktail rich with combating sweet and bitter flavors.

6. Sherry Sour 

I love this sherry sour because it’s light and refreshing and goes down easy. (Maybe a little too easy.)

This classic sour cocktail recipe incorporates an egg white for that signature frothy finish, so get those cocktail shakers ready!

If you aren’t ready for raw egg whites, you can always omit them. It just won’t be as frothy and creamy. 

It has a sweet, fruity finish from sherry and a tart lemon base that will make your mouth pucker in all the best ways. 

7. Pedrino Sherry & Tonic Spritz 

Are you looking for something light and refreshing? This Pedrino sherry and tonic spritz is the perfect cocktail to sip poolside

It earns a bubbly finish from a tonic spritz and fruity notes from the sherry.

Add an orange slice to lift those flavors, and serve in a glass filled with ice. 

It’s an excellent light and fruity cocktail to serve on a hot day, and it’s so easy to whip up a big batch. 

8. Adonis 

Yes, this cocktail is named after that super handsome Greek god, and for a very good reason. 

This dark and brooding cocktail has all the characteristics of a charismatic Greek god.

It’s dark, a little mysterious, and charming at any party. 

It earns its dark coloring from Oloroso sherry paired with vermouth and sweet sherry.

Add a few dashes of orange bitters, and garnish it with ice and an orange peel. 

9. Sherry and Rum Cocktail 

If rum cocktails are your absolute favorite, you must try this sherry and rum cocktail. 

Rum is a dark and flavorful spirit that pairs well with bright, fruity notes of sherry wine. 

For this cocktail, pair rum, sherry, apricot liqueur, simple syrup, and lemon juice to amplify those flavors from the rum. 

It has all the hallmarks of a rich rum cocktail, only lighter, brighter, and fruity. 

10. Coronation Cocktail 

The coronation cocktail is a classic for a very good reason. It’s nutty, fruity, tart, and just a little sweet.

It’s the perfect cocktail for happy hour and so delicious that it demands dusting off those fancy cocktail glasses. 

It pairs dry vermouth and sherry, maraschino liqueur, and orange bitters. It’s bright, sweet, and goes down easy. 

It’s a classic cocktail that everyone will love.

With just a few ingredients, it’s easy to whip it together for your next cocktail party. 

11. Cranberry Cobbler 

The cranberry cobbler is a festive take on the classic sherry cobbler.

While the original cobbler recipe uses orange for that acidic kick, the cranberry cobbler takes things to a new level. 

While it still uses orange slices, it also incorporates cranberry simple syrup for a kick of extra tartness (and beautiful red coloring!

Besides, what goes better together than cranberry and oranges?

12. Cabana Club 

The cabana club is the creation of the 2018 bartender of the year, so you know it has to be good. 

What makes the cabana club so delicious is that it pairs unlikely flavors.

It infuses sweet sherry with coconut water, cream of coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a dash of Pernod absinthe. 

Those flavors may not seem like they belong together.

But this dish’s refreshing yet robust flavors sing harmoniously and are unlike anything you’ve tried before!

13. Sherry Berry Cobbler Cocktail

This sherry berry cocktail looks like summertime in a glass.

It boasts a delicious pink hue thanks to muddled summer berries for a competing sweet and tart flavor. 

Pair muddled berries with sherry, simple syrup for extra sweetness, and lemon and orange juice

It’s light, and it’s perfect when you want something deliciously sweet and refreshing.
