Cocktail Fridays: the apple bourbon

October 24 2014

When I told Ant I was going to make a cocktail with bourbon and Appletiser he wasn’t that keen …. “does Appletiser go with bourbon?” he asked sort of sceptically.  I said, oh come on, you know you’re going to drink it (he loves my new cocktail Fridays thing because I experiment with the actual cocktails on Saturdays!  Win).

Anyway, hard-core bourbon drinkers might not think this is a legit combo but it is!  Bourbon being rich and dark with a dash of maple syrup works well with the fizzy, fresh apple flavour and a thin, crispy slice of apple.

  1. Emma, I’m so thrilled that you are doing the Friday cocktails, really is exciting to see the different creative ones you come up with, and this terrific apple-bourbon cocktail looks and sounds sooo inviting…especially the moving photos…genius! Have a lovely weekend! xo

  2. Sounds delicious! Although I should shamefully admit I’m not a big snob when it comes to cocktails… Great gifs too 🙂

  3. Looks great! I’ve actually never had Appletiser (it keeps getting auto-corrected to appetizer!) so I’ll have to try it if I can find it here.
