Bowen Close invites us to try this wonderful ginger and apple bourbon cocktail.
By Bowen Close
A few days ago I was in the mood for a drink and feeling festive (funny how those two feelings often go together), so put together a little cocktail. I developed this from items we had in the house, but it was good enough that I’ll buy more cider specifically for this. A bit spicy, and filled with wonderful flavors. Enjoy!
- 2 oz. apple cider/apple juice
- 1 oz. bourbon
- ½ to 1 oz. ginger syrup
- Squeeze of a half lemon
- Mix together all ingredients in a cocktail glass, and stir to combine.
