In this autumnal take on a classic Sherry Cobbler, muddled fresh cranberries and oranges mingle with Lustau’s East India Sherry for a cocktail packed with flavors of baking spices, burnt sugar, fig and candied walnuts. Drink this Vodka Cran on a foggy fall afternoon while adding another log to the fire.
