So I still was in love with the idea of using the frozen apples in a cocktail, I just wanted it to tie into the drink more and not just be a gimmick. That led me to using Laird’s Applejack. A variation of an Old Fashioned, and the inspiration of an old tale.
An Old Fashioned Tale
1 oz Laird’s Applejack
1 oz Rye Whiskey
2-3 dashes Fee Brother’s Whisky Barrel Bitters
Stir Applejack, Rye, bitters and Agave. Strain over frozen apple in Old Fashioned glass, sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Thoughts of possibly topping this with a foam are also being crafted.
