some things are seasonal. and some things are just too good to say goodbye to when the seasons change. so you just adapt.
in this case, I’ve adapted my favorite summer cocktail to fit beautifully in my fall lineup. and it just so happens to be national apple cider day. I couldn’t even lie about that, google it.
let me introduce the apple cider moscow mule.
ingredients: vodka, ginger beer, apple cider, lime juice.
the magic: 2 parts vodka, 1/2 part lime juice, 2 parts apple cider, top with ginger beer [approx. 1/2 cup].
if you’re looking for a way to spice up your thanksgiving dinner, this may be the ticket.
[occasionally holidays need vodka. this is a festive + tasty way to bring it over to your
grandma’s dinner, without all the stares + judgement you’d receive by walking in with just a bottle of vodka].
ladies & gentlemen – I have a mixologist on my hands. and I couldn’t be happier.
I asked kindly for a cocktail. and [J] delivered his amazing rendition of a cosmopolitan martini. [when I say amazing – I mean I had four. sue me ..it was the night of the presidential election. and I needed a dang cocktail to watch the coverage]. thanks to my asking for ‘said’ cocktail something good has now come out of the election. hahaha. JOKE ….too soon? ok.
well, I felt compelled to share.
I present to you the ..
peach + apple cosmotini.
