Apple Manhattan

09-Sep-2006
 
 
 
With Labor Day behind us, the days getting shorter and that little tang in the air even on sunny days, our thoughts turn to fall.  Fall always brings to mind apples – even if I do have an early ripening variety!  This week for my Happy Hour at Home column over on The Spirit World I decided to focus on them. 
 
The cocktail for this week is yummy!  It would really be good if sipped while sitting next to a cozy fire!  And it looks like we may have an opportunity to build one soon!  
 
The recipe calls for calvados, which is a French apple brandy.  I used a beautiful apple brandy that I picked up at the St. George Spirits‘ tasting room when I visited the distillery in May.  It really added a nice apple tone to this cocktail. 

Apple Manhattan
  • 1 3/4 oz calvados
  • 1/2 oz sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • Apple slice for garnish

Add all ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and stir gently with a barspoon. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the apple slice.
