y favorite season and when fall comes to New York, no one does it better than Gramercy Tavern. Simply put, it is stunning! A note about our NYE’s drinks. If you enjoy cocktails and like making them at home, you must get Danny Meyer’s [the man behind many of NY’s beloved restaurants] book Mix Shake Stir. It will become your bible.
Although this drink combines apple brandy and maple syrup it is not overly sweet. The acid from the juices balance it out well. In a small bowl, combine 2 oz of apple brandy with 2/3 oz maple syrup. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice adding the brandy-syrup mixture and ¾ oz each orange and lemon juices. Shake and strain into a martini glass; garnish with an apple slice. The Applejack Rabbit was the perfect “dessert.”
Following this and the fireworks show, we said goodbye to 2010. Excited to see what 2011 brings.
