Recipe: Apple Orchard Cocktail

Sharing is caring!

Skipping the traditional fall spices, apple vodka and elderflower liqueur keep this Apple Orchard Cocktail fresh and slightly floral.

Makes 1 cocktail. 

2 oz apple vodka
1 oz ginger syrup (recipe below)
0.5 oz apple brandy (I use Long Road)
0.25 oz elderflower liqueur
0.25 oz fresh lemon juice
2 dashes aromatic bitters 

Combine everything in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. 

Shake up and strain into a glass.

Garnish with an apple slice, if desired.

Enjoy your Apple Orchard Cocktail! 

Ginger Syrup

¼ cup sugar
½ cup water
1 inch piece of fresh ginger

Heat the water to boiling. Add sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. 

Peel and slice the ginger. 

Add to the hot water and sugar mixture. 

Allow to cool to room temperature. 

Cover and place in the refrigerator until chilled. 

Note: The longer you leave the ginger in the syrup, the stronger the flavor. If possible, make the syrup a day or two ahead of making cocktails to allow the ginger more time to infuse the syrup.
