Ingredients

For the drink

  • 1 1/2 Ounce Stolichnaya Gala Applik Vodka
  • 1 1/2 Ounce pear juice
  • 3/4 Ounces vanilla-nutmeg syrup
  • 1/2 Ounce fresh lime juice
  • 5 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 Ounce hard cider

For the vanilla-nutmeg syrup

  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 2 Cups water
  • 2 Teaspoons nutmeg
  • 6 vanilla beans, cut in half lengthwise

Directions

For the drink

Add all the ingredients except the cider to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake well and strain into a double Old Fashioned glass filled with fresh ice. Top with the cider and garnish with an apple slice and a sprinkle of grated nutmeg.

For the vanilla-nutmeg syrup

Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring until the sugar is fully dissolved. Let the syrup cool completely and strain into a closed container. Store in the refrigerator.

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.
