Apple Sidecar

Apple Sidecar cocktail with lemon juice and apple brandy

This drink was originally invented by Ryan Magarian at Restaurant Zoe in Seattle. Gary Regan modified it to produce this version, and recommends Clear Creek apple brandy. We have had great success swapping out pear brandy for the vodka in this recipe, but when we do, we usually increase the proportion of apple brandy to keep it apple-centric.

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an apple slice or a cross-section of apple. Sprinkle your apple garnishes with lemon or lime juice to keep them from turning brown.

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have.
