Grilled Apple Sour

1

This cocktail oozes autumn. And if you ever find yourself with apples that have gotten too soft? Toss them on a grill, they’re perfect for this simple recipe.

4 apple slices

Ice

2 ounces bourbon

½ ounce ginger liqueur

1 ounce of the juice from the grilled apples

¾ ounce fresh lemon juice

2 dashes Peychaud bitters

1 cinnamon stick, for garnish

1 grilled apple wedge, for garnish

Start by grilling apple slices over a hot flame until they get soft and have nice char marks. Set in a container to cool and capture the juices. 


In a cocktail shaker, muddle grilled apple slices. Add ice, bourbon, ginger liqueur, the grilled-apple juice, lemon juice, and bitters. Shake vigorously until cold. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer and into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a grilled apple wedge. The strainer helps keep the cocktail as clear as possible since there’s a lot of pulp in the apples and in the cocktail shaker.
