Perfect for a New York City dad - or to celebrate the launch of Macintosh computers in 1984 - The Liquid Chef Junior Merino has developed a way for daddy to transport back to yesteryear of MTV, a decade of hair bands and early Madonna (no Delorean required).

Ingredients

  • 2  Ounces  Hudson Whiskey
  • 1/4  Ounce  Xtabentun, Mayan honey & anise liqueur
  • 1/2  Ounce  grilled empire apple juice
  • 1/2  Ounce  homemade cinnamon syrup
  • 2/3  Ounces  lime juice
  • dashes Peychauds Bitters

Directions

To make the juice, blister empire apples on a grill. Allow apples to cool and then peel skin. After coring apples, put apples through a juicer.

For the cinnamon syrup: put two cups of sugar, one cup of water, and 6 cinnamon sticks in a pot. Turn heat on to low and allow sugar to dissolve. Then shut off heat. Do not allow to boil, as sugar will crystallize.

Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass, add ice, shake and strain over new ice into a rocks glass. Grate whole nutmeg over the top to garnish.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
