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.
- 1½ parts Vodka or Apple vodka or Pear brandy
- ½ part Apple brandy
- 1 part Lemon juice
- ½ part Simple syrup
- ½ part Orange juice
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.
