Anyway, here’s the recipe. This is an excellent drink for the chef to have during a long day of cooking. It also works equally as well for guests before the big feast, or, if you’re like me, a few days in advance of the big feast ;).
2.5 ounces of Apple Juice/Cider (The higher quality stuff you find in the fruit section of the grocery store is recommended.)
2 ounces of Wild Turkey bourbon
¾ ounce of Cinnamon Schnapps
Place all ingredients in a cocktail filled with ice. Shake, shake, shake until your hands are too cold to continue. Strain into a pre-rimmed cocktail glass. Enjoy the kick!
To rim the glasses: Mix a couple of tablespoons of sugar with a sprinkling of cinnamon and allspice. Moisten the edge of the martini glass with a slice of lemon, then dip the rim into the sugar/cinnamon/allspice mixture until it’s covered. This adds a really sweet flavor to the spicy kick at the end of the drink.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with your families.
