'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).

Deliver Ingredients

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.

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.
