3⁄4 oz Ramazzotti
1⁄4 oz Bigallet China-China
1 sli Apple (garnish)

Stir, strain, up. Cut a slit in the apple slice and place it on the glass at a jaunty angle.


A sprightly but sophisticated apple drink that captures the essence of a tart slice on a hot day. Can add Angostura for an earthier drink, but I find the recipe as-is more delicious.

Sweet and potent, about 88 proof before ice dilution if Laird's Bottled-in-bond is used, pretty hot! Perhaps something like an 80 proof Calvados or 86 proof St. George apple brandy would work better to mellow the heat? Pleasant flavors with root beer/anise from the Ramazzotti and the orange components of the Bigallet.
