I tend to click on Beantown Eats when I’m in the need of a great cocktail recipe. The site is run by my good friends Jon (drink part) and Lin (food part). This duo does such a fantastic job covering all things food and drink in the Boston area. In fact, Jon recently won a drink recipe contest that will land his latest creation on the menu at The Hawthorne.
As Nic Cage would say, “That’s high praise.” Jon knows his sh*t.
Say hello to the Spiced Apple Bourbon Fizz. I made the cocktail for this year’s Thanksgiving feast and found it to be the perfect alcoholic beverage for a family gathering.
I recommend that you follow Jon’s directions precisely and definitely lean towards the extra effort of infusing your bourbon. It makes such a difference…promise! The infusion does take a full 24 hours to reach its full potential, so please plan accordingly.
Also, Jon only uses the good stuff in all his drinks. That listed ginger liqueur runs about $30+ a bottle, but you can purchase a knock-off for $13.
As you can see, the overall presentation of this drink is beautiful and the taste is even better. The infusion also cuts that strong bourbon taste just a bit, leaving you with an incredibly smooth drink that packs a punch.
Try it out and please drink responsibly.
