Apples Are Forever

apples are forever

When Ms. Hot Pot came over, we debated apples in cocktails for quite a while. In particular the fact I’ve not really had a whole lot with hard cider OR apples in general that I enjoyed. Fast forward a few weeks and we’ve developed one that I’ll proudly toast to apples, cider, gin and Hot Pot, for inspiring me to push my way through a truly alarming amount of failures to get to this recipe. So cheers to Hot Pot and all of you!


Equipment: couple or martini glass, shaker, strainer, muddler

Smoked (or not – up to you) apple slice, finely diced

½ oz Lillet Blanc

2 oz Vodka (Tito’s is wonderful for this)

1½ oz gin

Twist of lemon for garnish


Muddle apple and Lillet in shaker tin. Add vodka and gin, then top with ice and shake for 20 seconds. Strain into glass and garnish with twist of lemon. Cheers!
