The Big Apple- 1 oz Bols Genever, 1 oz Apple Brandy, 1 oz Sweet Vermouth, dash orange bitters

8 Aug

With all the riffing of white Manhattans taking place, I thought I would provide my own version. The Bols, closer in flavor to a whiskey than a gin, puts a spin on a great classic.

1 oz Bols Genever
1 oz Apple Brandy (Clear Creek)
1 oz Sweet Vermouth (Dolin)
1 dash homemade orange bitters

The apple brandy makes an excellent match with the malty flavors of the genever, almost like a hard cider. The vermouth provides the extra balance in sweetness, with the bitters tying it all together. Delicious.
