Thinking of Drinking: Iduna

You can never have enough cocktails for Thanksgiving!  Alex 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.
