About this Cocktail
This cocktail is from Gramercy Tavern and was featured in Bon Appetit. The recipe calls for apple brandy and bourbon. I used bonded Laird's and Rittenhouse bonded rye, and it was pretty tasty.
1 oz. apple brandy
1 oz. bourbon
1 oz. apple cider
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. thyme-infused simple syrup
1 dash Ango
To make the syrup: Boil 1/2 cup sugar and a 1/2 cup water until sugar is dissolved. Take off the heat and add 15 sprigs of thyme. Let cool and then strain out thyme.
Shake all ingredients and strain into coup. The recipe suggests garnishing with a dried or fresh apple slice. A lemon twist gets the job done as well.
