Apple, Bourbon, Cocktail

Bourbon for Apples

Make use of my recent Apple Shrub recipe with this delicious cocktail.


Bourbon for Apples Cocktail

  • 2 oz bourbon*
  • 1.5 oz Applejack or Apple-flavored brandy
  • 2 oz Tart Apple Shrub
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, optional but a must if you prefer a sweeter cocktail
  • splash club soda

Combine all ingredients except the club soda in a cocktail mixer – or if you’re like me, a mason jar – with 3 ice cubes. Shake thoroughly. Pour into a glass. Top with club soda. Enjoy at the end of a long Monday in Autumn.

*As a Kentuckian, don’t get me started on bourbon or you’re in for a long conversation. For cocktails though, I stick with Four Roses Yellow Label. Jim Beam is a good close second. Other bourbons may be tastier, but their flavor isn’t fully appreciated in a cocktail; Yellow Label and Beam have just the right quality-to-price ratio for my taste.
