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!
