Applejack – Fall Cocktail Recipe

Last time we were in LA, I had the extreme pleasure of visiting with the very talented and charming Caroline Mili Artiss and shooting some videos with her! We made a couple of fall cocktails; mine, a warming apple brandy sipper and hers, the classic English mulled wine.

This cocktail combines one of my favorite American boozes — applejack, aka apple brandy — with the most famous North American sweetener: maple syrup. Plus some fresh citrus juices to avoid the scurvy and you have yourself a classically American cocktail, I say.
