With the sun coming out, I thought it was time for a series of Single Malt Cocktails.
Number four in this series is actually one of my own mixes and therefore kinda named after me: the Snobby Apple
I used a cask strength SMWS bottle that came from the Aultmore distillery. But any ex-bourbon cask whisky will do!
4 cl of a single malt whisky, in this case: SMWS 73.124
6 cl Ginger beer (I used Royal Club)
10 cl cloudy Apple Juice
A big block (in my case ball) of ice (and some extra to shake with)
An apple for garnish
Fill your cocktail shaker with a some ice
Add the whisky
Add the ginger beer
Add the apple juice
Shake cold over the ice. Watch out, the ginger beer is carbonated so it will fizz!
Place the block of ice in the glass
Pour the mix in the glass, over the ice
I'm not a big fan of ginger. Not at all even. But when building up this cocktail, the apple juice alone was not enough and bitters did not do the trick.
So I used ginger beer, which worked! the result is a very nice, not to sweet drink. To enjoy on a sunny afternoon of even at night in a dusty cocktailbar.
If you try it, let me know what you think!
