An Apple a Day…
We had one lonesome apple left from our Thanksgiving apple pie this year, so this MxMo topic came at just the right time. I’m also partial to using cooking apples in cocktails because I like their tartness in the drink. In this case, the apple component is limited to the garnish, but all of the ingredients played very well together and complemented the tart apple aroma of the garnish.
By coincidence, I noticed that this drink uses two prominent French ingredients – Cognac, and Chartreuse. So I decided to play on that with the name, which translates to “Apple Orchard.”
Thanks again to Frederic for hosting this month, and I’m sure that lonesome apple is very happy with where he ended up!
