Fall Treats, not Tricks
I admit I like apple as the flavor and scent of fall, almost more than pumpkin. Might have something to do with my parents living on 25 acres of apple orchards? Any way, I found this wonder recipe on The Glitter Guide and just had to share. Doesn't it sounds delicious?
2 oz vodka
2 oz apple cider
1 tsp thyme-infused simple syrup
Juice of half a lime
Thyme (to garnish)
For the thyme-infused simple syrup: Mix equal parts sugar and water with a few sprigs of thyme over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool for 5 minutes while thyme steeps. Strain. For the martini: Combine vodka, simple syrup, cider and lime juice in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled glass. Garnish with thyme.
