With the change in the wind already upon us I’d say it’s not too early to jump start the Apple-cocktails creation process! I love the summer but fall takes the pie. And since we’re talking about pie........ here’s a cocktail created with apple pie in mind :)

  • 2oz Peach Street Colorado Bourbon
  • 1oz Spiced Pear Maple Syrup

  1. Muddle fresh Ginger & Granny Smith Apple together in mixing glass until smashed.

  3. Strain into a cocktail glass filled with fresh ice.
