Following up on this week’s ode to the best apple recipes for fall, let’s talk cocktails, shall we? We’re tentatively planning a trip to the apple orchard this weekend with the kiddos and a bunch of friends and their families, so I know the apples will soon be overflowing our fruit bowl. By a whole lot. So it only seemed fitting that we talk about whipping some of those beauties into a cocktail or two! (Or, you know, skip the booze if you wanting a refreshing sip sans alcohol.) These three all look mighty fine to me. Pairing fresh apple taste with flavors like ginger, cranberry, elderflower, vanilla and rosemary, we’re skipping the boozy warm apple cider options for now in lieu of crisp, apple flavor that’s in keeping with the season. Because technically it’s still summer, ok? I’m not giving up these last couple of days to the hands of fall just yet!
