“The tradition of cider goes back to our founding fathers. Now, there’s a resurgence happening. More often than not, craft cider makers these days are producing ciders with a smooth, dry finish. These are a natural fit for cocktails because they bring a lot of flavor without overpowering a drink or making it too strong. The base spirit in this cocktail is Fair Game Apple Brandy, made in Pittsboro from North Carolina apples. From there, I added Appalachian Mountain Brewery’s Cinful Plum Cider, which has that fall cinnamon flavor. I also used Eden Heirloom Blend Ice Cider. Ice cider is made by freezing cider. You drain off the ice, and since the alcohol doesn’t freeze, you’re left with a more concentrated product. It has a rich, deep flavor that rounds out the drink.” Mattie Beason, â¨Black Twig Cider House, DurhamInCider Trading1Â½ ounces Fair Game Apple Brandy1Â½ ounces Appalachian Mountain Brewery Cinful Plum CiderÂ¼ ounce Luxardo Maraschino LiqueurÂ¾ ounce Eden Heirloom Blend Ice CiderStir ingredients together over ice, then strain into an Old Fashioned glass.
