apple brandy


here's a quick and refreshing cocktail inspired by a drink from jg domestic that i tasted on a recent trip to philly. it went perfectly with the hickory smoked georgia pecans with maple & bacon! we used apple brandy from harvest spirits for this libation - they are located in the hudson valley and apparently give tours and tastings at their distillery. sounds like we need to take a road trip soon!

The Philadelphia
makes 1

1 oz high quality gin
1 oz apple brandy
1 tbs meyer lemon juice
2 tsp maple syrup
3 1/2 oz club soda
1 sprig thyme
1 slice of apple
in a cocktail shaker, combine gin, brandy, lemon juice and maple syrup with ice and shake well. pour into a high ball glass, top with club soda and stir. garnish with thyme and apple. enjoy!

drink sounds delicious. but in this case, i'm most interested in the glass in the picture - who produces that beauty?

So, I do not actually consider this may have success.
