How To Keep Apple Slices Bright For A Whiskey Cocktail Garnish

0 6

A little lemony edge could even be a welcome citrusy addition to some apple-whiskey cocktails, like a classic three-part spritzer with Crown Royal Regal apple-flavored whisky, lemon-lime soda, and cranberry juice, stirred together over ice in a highball glass and garnished with fresh apple slices. Coat the rim with coarse sea salt to drive the mouth-watering profile home. Fresh, white, lemon-tinged apple slices (and a few mint leaves) would also be delicious atop a Whiskey Lemonade for poolside sipping this summer. 

Or, lean autumnal and combine whiskey, lemon juice, and ginger ale — topped, of course, with fresh lemony apple slices and a cinnamon sugar rim. You could also swap the lemon juice here for acidic apple cider to make a toddy-inspired cocktail. Or, go sophisticated with Jack Daniel’s, funky non-filtered apple cider, a sprig of fresh rosemary, and your lemony apple slices. Like apple juice, which pairs perfectly with whiskey, apple slices also belong in the realm of classic whiskey cocktail culture. 

Use them to garnish an apple cider Old Fashioned, or to put a spin on the nostalgic Honeymoon cocktail with Crown Apple, herbal Bénédictine liqueur, orange curaçao, and lemon juice. You can also flex some fancy flair by crafting a reimagined Appletini using Calvados, lemon juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and sour apple schnapps, swapping the vodka for whiskey or Scotch. Shake it over ice, fine-strain it into a chilled martini glass, garnish it with a skewer of lemon-soaked Granny Smith apple slices and brandied cherries, and enjoy.
