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.

Ingredients

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 app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
