I love fall and am just dying to wear my tall boots, sweater coats, and houndstooth tights. I am aching to snuggle under a blanket by our outdoor fireplace, cocktail firmly in hand. Here's hoping this fall libation brings on some chilly evenings and toasty nights. Hubba Hubba.
Caramel Apple Pie
1 oz. tequila (The better the tequila the better the drink. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT use the crap you used at the PIKA house for upsidedown margaritas in college!)
½ oz. butterscotch schnapps (Also excellent over vanilla ice cream for a grown up treat!)
1 oz. apple cider (The real deal from the farmers market. If it ain't a bit cloudy, it ain't cider.)
1 tsp. lemon juice (Fresh, natch.)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the damn fine tequila, schnapps, cider and lemon juice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with an apple slice.I prefer a green Granny Smith apple slice because the Red Delicious is anything but.
