Sparkling Autumn Blossom

This month’s cocktail is fresh new combination using our own Urban Forged Apple Brandy and cinnamon infused maple syrup.  It’s just what the doctor ordered (an apple a day does keep the doctor away) on a sunny fall afternoon, and a delicious substitution for your brunch-time mimosa. Refreshing and smooth.

For one cocktail:

• 2 oz. Fremont Mischief Urban Forged Apple Brandy
• 1/2 oz. cinnamon maple syrup (recipe below)
• champagne

Fill a shaker with ice and add the Urban Forged Apple Brandy and maple cinnamon syrup. Shake well and strain into a champagne flute.  Then top with champagne and voilà!

Maple Cinnamon Syrup:

  • 1 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 8-10 sticks of cinnamon, broken up a bit
  • Zest from 1 lemon

Put water and syrup all in a sauce pan.
Break up cinnamon sticks a bit.
Using a fine grater, grate in the peel of 1 lemon.
Simmer for 15 minutes.
Strain and refrigerate. Will last 2 or more weeks.
