Big Apple Cocktail

'80s Big Apple Cocktail

Regardless if dad, grandpa, or another significant fatherly figure first became a proud papa at the turn of the century or in 2013, there’s a drink for each and every one of them. Here’s a plethora of picks for the male parent who helped us grow up to our present selves.

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
  • 3 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.
