25 Days of Christmas Cocktails, Day 6: Curbside Cider


For Day 6 of her cocktail Advent calendar, Anu Apte of the Rob Roy in Seattle serves a drink created by Jeff Grdinich who, as bartender at The Rose in Jackson, WY, knows a thing or two about cold weather imbibing. When the barometer drops, this herbal, invigorating take on hot apple cider is sure to warm you to the core.

1 1/2 oz. rye whiskey
3/4 oz. St. Germain
1/4 oz. Fernet-Branca
4 oz. apple cider
Glass: mug
Garnish: candied apple peel or dried apple wheel (optional)

Warm the cider on the stove top over medium heat until warmed through. Add the whiskey, St. Germain and Fernet. Garnish if desired and serve.
