Ever since I spotted this cocktail in Market-Fresh Mixology, I've been dying to try it. With my renewed focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, the weekend was the perfect time to give The Apple Cocktail a shot.
The key is to find a large fruit that sits evenly so it makes for a well-balanced cup. The cozy combination of apple, cinnamon, and lemon means you'll be done with the drink in no time — and the beverage's rustic presentation would make it the perfect après-ski libation.
