Saturday's Cocktails: Autumn in New York

I'm writing this a little early, because I'll be traveling this weekend. Although I won't be in New York, which is rather disappointing, because there isn't anywhere else I'd rather be. However, this weekend I'm setting for Washington DC and some fun with friends.

But since I'm feeling homesick for my NYC, I leave you with this extremely tasty cocktail by Drink of the Week:

Autumn in New York

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz hard apple cider
  • 1 oz (fresh pressed if you can get it) apple juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice

Shaken till well chilled, strained into a martini glass rimmed with pure maple sugar. Garnished with an apple slice.

And if you aren't quite sure who to rim your martini glasses with maple sugar, check out this Three Tier Glass Rimmer from Want!
