The Harvest Sling is yet another incredible autumn cocktail from the folks at PDT (Please Don’t Tell), the speakeasy responsible in large part for the last decade’s resurgent cocktail culture.
The flavor of the drink tastes like an apple just over the peak of ripeness, supported by the herbal honey of Bénédictine (a sweet herbal liqueur), and the spiced-smoky-cherry flavors supplied by both cherry brandy and sweet vermouth. Lemon and ginger beer offer effervescence that keeps the whole drink light and sippable.
Shake everything (except the ginger beer) with ice. Strain into a short ice-filled glass and top with the ginger beer.
