Apple Cobbler

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Since I won't be posting on Friday (don't worry, I have a very special wedding to share tomorrow), I thought we'd kick off the long weekend with a perfect Thanksgiving aperitif! Pick up a bottle of bourbon to spice up your pecan pie, then whip up one of these to enjoy while you're finishing last-minute preparations tonight! 


Apple-Bourbon Cobbler

2 oz apple cider
2 oz ginger ale 
1 oz bourbon

Combine apple cider and bourbon; shake well. Strain over crushed ice, top with ginger ale. Garnish with an apple slice. 


Notes: The cobbler is the rare historical cocktail class that is categorized more by the glass and ice than by the ingredients–in this case, a "long drink" served over crushed ice and garnished with fruit. This simple cocktail is served well by the freshest apple cider you can find and whatever bourbon you have on hand. Cheers, and Happy Thanksgiving!
