- 1 (½-inch) slice Fuji apple
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- ½ ounce lemon juice
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
- 2 ounces Daron Calvados
- 4 ounces Downeast Unfiltered Craft Cider
- Pinch freshly grated nutmeg for garnish
In this recipe, I aim to capture that delicate crisp sweetness of fresh apples lifted by the spice of bitters and bubbles.
In a bar tin, muddle apple slice with sugar, lemon juice and bitters. Add Calvados and ice. Shake for 10 seconds and strain into a glass filled with fresh ice and top with Downeast Cider. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
