John and I were making drinks tonight and I decided to experiment with some Cranberry wine we picked up about a year ago in Charlottesville.
I made him a modified Cosmopolitan with so/so results. But my drink was the real winner – a very fall-feeling, cold evening (and it’s rainy and I’m not feeling well tonight, so that qualifies, right?) kind of beverage.
1 – 1.25 oz Applejack
a couple mulling spices
Add brandy to wine and stir – garnish with spices. I like this served in a snifter.
Alternate cold version – shake and serve in chilled glass.
