apple cocktail

A medley of apple flavors brighten this rum drink from Los Angeles. 

The tart juiciness of fresh granny smith apples contrasts the oaky vanilla notes of apple brandy in this seasonal rum cocktail.


  • 1½ oz. aged rum (Cloyes uses Bacardi 8)
  • ½ oz. apple brandy
  • ¾ oz. apple syrup
  • ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ oz. egg white (pasteurized, if you like)
  • Club soda, to top
  • Tools:shaker, strainer, fine strainer
  • Glass:cocktail or coupe
  • Garnish:granny smith apple fan


Combine the first 5 ingredients in a shaker, then dry shake (without ice). Add ice, then shake again to chill. Double strain into a glass, top with soda, then garnish.

Apple syrup: Cut 1 granny smith apple into chunks, then juice. Combine the juice with equal parts of granulated sugar by weight. Blend briefly to emulsify.
