IMG_2201.JPG

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)

Method:

  1. In a champagne flute add the ingredients in order shown.
  2. Stir gently
  3. Enjoy

Notes:

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.

Cheers,

Aaron
