A New Way to Drink Your Apples

Of all the uses for apples—eating them, bribing teachers—distilling them into the French brandy known as calvados is right there at the top.

The stiff, apple-laced liquor makes a fine nightcap on its own. But it also makes a fine cocktail, as evidenced by this attractive and very drinkable drink at Clique, that just-opened bar inside the Cosmopolitan.

So if you’re in Vegas, great. But even if you’re not, also great. Because we pilfered (asked nicely for) the recipe.

Apple of My Eye

1 1/2 oz Daron Fine Calvados
1/2 oz St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur
1 oz unfiltered apple juice
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz spiced honey syrup

Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice. Then double strain with a tea strainer into a coupe and garnish with skewered apple slices.
