As Vermont’s greenery starts to give way to the fiery colors of fall, this cocktail combines the ease of endless summer with a taste of the season to come. Layers of apple flavor and the rich sweetness of maple syrup meld easily and, with the addition of local hard cider, go down even easier.
5 oz. applejack*
5 oz. fresh lemon juice
5 oz. Rosemary-Cider Maple Syrup, page 229
1 c. apple, peeled and chopped
16 oz. chilled SILO Cider
16 oz. chilled club soda
8 lemon wedges
Combine the applejack, lemon juice, syrup and apple in the glass pitcher and chill 8 hours or overnight. Into the chilled mixture, gradually pour the beer and club soda. Fill mugs with crushed ice and divide cocktail and apple pieces between them. Garnish each glass with a lemon wedge.
