From the bartender’s corner – The Dutch Apple
This evening’s mixologist challenge was to come up with a drink that uses the Genever Roger gave me and deal with the fact that Atlanta temperatures went from balmy 70s to wintry 50s with high cold winds. After looking up a few places, found out one in the magazine Food and Wine.
The cocktail is called the Dutch Apple. This is the first cocktail ever where I had to use the stove!! This is 2 ounces of Genever, 2 ounces of apple cider, 1 ounce of honey liqueur and bitters. But here is the thing – you heat it up till it simmers and then pour into your drink glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Both Sharmila and I loved the output. A great wintry drink!!!
