Autumn Breeze Cocktail

It’s starting to feel like fall is coming.  The nights are cooler, football has started, the Halloween costumes are for sale at the stores.  I love the fall season!!  I love the beautiful colors of the trees, the beautiful sunny days with no humidity, pumpkins, apples and Halloween candy.

Here is a cocktail to celebrate this wonderful season!  I can even say that this cocktail is good for you too, now don’t disagree. It has apples and ginger, two great foods for your immune system! 😉

  • 5 thinly sliced apple slices, divided
  • Ice
  • 1½ ounces Vodka (I used Ketel One)
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • grated ginger to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon)

In a cocktail shaker, use a muddler to crush 4 of the apple slices until the slices are pulpy. Add grated ginger.

Add the ice, Ketel One Vodka, lime juice and simple syrup. Cover, shake and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with the remaining apple slice.

I could use the apple and ginger for multiple drinks.  Enjoy!!
