It’s starting to feel like fall is coming. The nights are cooler, football has started, the Halloween costumes are for sale at the stores. I love the fall season!! I love the beautiful colors of the trees, the beautiful sunny days with no humidity, pumpkins, apples and Halloween candy.
Here is a cocktail to celebrate this wonderful season! I can even say that this cocktail is good for you too, now don’t disagree. It has apples and ginger, two great foods for your immune system!
- 5 thinly sliced apple slices, divided
- 1½ ounces Vodka (I used Ketel One)
- ½ ounce fresh lime juice
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- grated ginger to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon)
In a cocktail shaker, use a muddler to crush 4 of the apple slices until the slices are pulpy. Add grated ginger.
Add the ice, Ketel One Vodka, lime juice and simple syrup. Cover, shake and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with the remaining apple slice.
I could use the apple and ginger for multiple drinks. Enjoy!!
