- Cooking Time: N/A
- Servings: 2
- Preparation Time: 2 minutes
- 3 tbsp gold rum
- 2 tbsp brandy
- 1 1/2 tbsp apple cider
- 1 tsp pure maple syrup (Grade B is best)
- 3/4 tsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1. Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled. Strain into two cocktail or old-fashioned glasses. Serves 2.
NOTES: I shouldn't have to tell anyone, but let me be clear: use quality ingredients. PURE maple syrup (not "pancake" syrup), freshly-squeezed lemon, quality brandy and rum. You can gussy this drink up with a thin slice of apple wedged onto the rim of the glass, but I don't hold with anything that gets between me and my drink.
PLEASE BE AWARE: there is a LOT of sugar in this drink. Between the brandy, the maple syrup, and the apple cider, a couple of these will get your head spinning very quickly. Which is fine, as long as you're not driving. And, of course, please drink responsibly.
