Here’s a simple autumn inspired cocktail using fresh apples, pear vodka, and ginger ale! You will need to make a simple honey syrup by combining two parts honey to one part boiling water. Stir to dissolve and allow to it cool slightly.

 

In a cocktail shaker add:
– 1 oz pear flavoured vodka
– .75 oz lime juice
– .75 oz honey syrup
– 3 slices of fresh apple

 

Use a muddler to break up the apple slightly, and to combine the ingredients. Add a hand full of ice and shake to combine. Pour into a glass on top of fresh ice and top it up with ginger ale. Add a thin apple slice to the rim as garnish and Enjoy!

Are you discouraged from making homemade pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving because having a quarter can of pumpkin puree leftover is unsettling? Here’s a solution… Make pumpkin Kahlúa coffee with it, obviously. Add 1 Tbsp. of the pumpkin puree to your mug with 1 oz of Kahlúa and two or three pinches of ground cinnamon. Mix it all together and fill the mug with your favourite coffee. Add cream, milk or sugar to taste and top it off with some whipped cream and another sprinkling of cinnamon. Enjoy!

 

 

Simple Summer Cocktail

Here’s a simple summer drink recipe that’s easy to make and only requires a cocktail shaker or a muddler. Instead of using a simple syrup of sugar and water, which needs to be brought to a simmer on the stove top, this drink uses an easy to make honey syrup. Simply boil some water in a kettle or on the stove and mix two parts honey to one part water.

 

In a cocktail shaker add:

– a hand full of ice
– 1oz honey syrup
– 1oz amber or spiced rum
– 10–12 mint leaves
– juice from half a lime

 

Shake and pour into a glass on top of fresh ice. The ice in the shaker will crush the mint to flavour the drink. I prefer to use a shaker instead of a muddler because it strains out the larger pieces of mint when you pour. Add soda water and stir to finish.

 

If you do not have a cocktail shaker, you can add the ingredients listed above, except for the ice, directly into a glass and use a muddler to crush the mint. Strain, if desired, and then add the ice and soda and stir. Enjoy!
