You can never have enough cocktails for Thanksgiving! Alex Hecht of the Gibson shared a great fall cocktail recipe he calls "Iduna;" named after the Norse goddess who provided the gods with apples, thereby providing them eternal youthfulness. It's a mixture of apple brandy, ginger syrup, lemon juice, and bitters. When all the flavors come together, it tastes like a crisp, baked apple.
2 Oz. Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy (Or Apple Jack)
1 1/2 Oz. Ginger Syrup
3/4 Oz. Lemon Juice
Dash Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters
Shake, double strain, and serve up. Garnish with a lemon peel.
*Lauren's Tip: This would also be amazing with Diep 9 Apple.
