The Autumn Meadow is a lovely honey-apple whiskey sour, borne out of a collaboration between the Malling Mjød mead company and Danish bartender Jesper Skov.
The mead you use should ideally be semi-sweet or dry. If it’s on the sweeter side, you might want to cut back on the simple syrup just a bit.
- 2 parts Bourbon or Blended whiskey or Rye whiskey
- ½ part Apple brandy
- ½ part Mead
- 1 part Lime juice
- ¾ part Simple syrup
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a wedge or twist of lime.
