Grab Your Apple Barrel!

The weekend has arrived, and we hope that means your social calendar is full with activities to last you through your Monday morning coffee.  Helping you start your weekend off right, here is a delicious cocktail to sweeten Happy Hour.

We recently worked on a Garden of Eden-esque event, (check out the BizBash Article), to create an unforgettable evening for our out of state guests.  The client is a true foodie, social butterfly and mixologist extraordinaire who loves a good party.  We produced her signature Temptation cocktail as the greeting drink for the party.  A true play on “good and evil”, it is the perfect balance of tart and sweet.  Try it, love it, and try it again….we won’t judge. 🙂

Ingredients:

Mint Infused Simple Syrup

Stolichnaya Gala Applik (no substitutes!)

White Grape Juice

Cointreau

Lime

(1) Large Granny Smith Apple, Thinly Sliced for Garnish

Method:

Start with 1 Part Mint Infused Simple Syrup.  Add in 3 Parts of the Stolichnaya Gala Applik Vodka and 1 Part White Grape Juice. Finish with a splash of Cointreau and Lime.  Garnish the beverage with a large slice of apple.  You want the apple to be thin enough to float beautifully but still soak up some of the cocktail flavor.

Cheers!
