Summer is ending and fall is easing its way into our lives. I have selected for you a fine transitional beverage, neither too summer light nor winter heavy. I give you, The Soother.
- 1 oz Cognac
- 1 oz Jamaican Rum
- 1/2 oz Orange Curaçao
- 1/2 lemon's worth of juice
- 1 tsp apple juice
- 1/2 tsp simple syrup
Shake all the ingredients in an ice filled cocktail shaker, and strain into a cocktail glass. The garnish is a lemon twist.
I find this to be a interesting drink, the apple juice adds just a hint of complexity to the final product. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
