Black Card Cocktail
This recipe features one of my favorite spices, black cardamom, and a homemade spiced apple cider syrup. Harvested in the Himalayan mountains, black cardamom's smoky flavor and herbal quality mixed with the sweetness of apple brandy creates a smooth spirit-forward cocktail. The sugary sweet, bitter, and smoky flavor is perfect for the fall season and any holiday party. Enjoy!
Ingredients in the Black Card Cocktail
1 oz Calvados Boulard VSOP
1 oz Aged Rum (Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva)
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Homemade Spiced Apple Cider Syrup*
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 dash Peychaud's bitters
How to Make the Black Card Cocktail
