The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree

The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree by Justin Taylor. Danika Sea photo

Juice of one whole Ginger Crisp apple (around 2oz)*
1 oz unsweetened cranberry juice
1.5 oz gin
0.5 oz ginger liqueur
0.5 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 dashes of orange bitters
Apple slices and cranberries (for garnish)

Using a press or juicer, extract juice from apple. Add all ingredients (except garnish) to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake hard for 20 seconds. Double strain into a chilled cocktail coupe and garnish with apple and cranberry skewers.

*Tip: Store-bought apple juice is no substitute for the real thing and your drinks will not taste the same if you choose to use it. Please experiment responsibly!
