Braeburn Cocktail

An apple cider-based drink is perfect for the winter months


Mixologist Xavier Herit has written the book on cocktails. (He was the force behind the Daniel Boulud cocktail book.) He's found a new home at New York City's NoMa Hotel in SoHo and revamped their entire bar program. He's riffed on the hot buttered rum by adding apple cider and a pumpkin-spiced butter.
