Cocktail: Apple Old Fashioned

Recipe:

• Three thin slices of apple
• One teaspoon of nutmeg
• ½ teaspoon of sugar
• Three dashes of bitters
• Splash of club soda
• 1 ½ ounces of Bushel & Barrel bourbon

Muddle the apples, nutmeg, sugar, bitters and club soda in an old fashion glass. Add ice, bourbon and stir.

Food and Beverage Manager Stefano Middei noted, “This cocktail is very warming without being overly harsh like a traditional Old Fashioned. The apple and nutmeg notes give it a slight sweetness that makes it very easy to drink in front of a fire after a long cold winter day.”
