Recipe For Harvard Cooler Cocktail

Happy Hour: Harvard Cooler

I wish there were more dishes in my repertoire for that transitional period when warm weather's not quite ended and Autumn's yet to really begin, but thankfully I've discovered at least one cocktail. By its name alone, the Harvard Cooler sounds like the start to a crisp, cool Cambridge Fall — but its spritzy, bright appearance still sings of summertime.

This oddly named cocktail, which is apparently a staple at bars in Japan, is a combination of lemon, sugar, seltzer, and apple brandy. The recipe's quite simple, but sometimes that's what works best. See it when you read on.
