Harvest Moon | Cocktail Party

Harvest Moon

We first discovered this little gem on The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess, a wonderfully educational channel on The Small Screen Network website.

It’s easy to make and layered with delightful flavor, but it can be a bit too sweet if you’re using regular ol’ applejack. A higher-proof apple brandy like Laird’s Bottled-in-Bond or some Calvados gives this drink the kick it needs. If you don’t have it, just pull back on the orgeat a bit.

Hess calls for lime juice, but lemon juice also works here – we almost prefer it!



Shake with ice and strain into a chilled, dainty cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime or lemon wheel, an apple slice spritzed with citrus juice, or all of the above, or nothing at all.
