Our Six Chairs At The Table dinner this past month was wonderful. We focused on lesser used meats like lamb and duck, so I wanted to create a savory and soothing cocktail that would start the night off right. This cocktail mixture offers a sweet, earthy, and bitter in a great combo and sets a nice tone for the rich meats we ate.
I wanted to use some out-of-the-box liquor this time around, so I chose to make the base white rum and brandy. Garnished with some red delicious apples ,this is subtle drink that opens up your palette for some fun and unique tastes.
- 3 ounce white rum
- 1.5 ounce brandy
- 3 slices red delicious apples
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1.5 ounce Cherry Coke
- Angostura Bitters
Take a cocktail mixer and drop in the sugar and 2 slices of Red Delicious apples, save 1 slice for garnish.
Add a few dashes of your bitters and muddle for a few moments.
Drop in some ice and pour in the liquor components and shake for a couple seconds.
Strain into a glass with ice, add a splash Cherry Coke. Garnish with the remaining apple slice.
