Recipe: Cider Cocktail
- 1/2 oz Brandy
- 2 Ice Cubes
- 6 oz Dry Sparkling Hard Apple Cider – Honesty Box (NZ), Strongbow (UK), or Big Rock (Cdn) are good choices.
- 1″ Twist of lime (just the outer skin)
- Dash Orange Bitters (Optional)
- In a champagne flute add the ingredients in order shown.
- Stir gently
Doesn’t get much simpler. The original recipe calls for expensive Calvados. This version uses less expensive brandy (Remi), with the lime twist and orange bitters adding a subtle hint of fruit in the mix.
