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)
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.
