The Five Stars

  • 1 4 oz Ardbeg 10 year Single malt Whisky
  • 1 oz Calvados
  • 1 oz Pommeau de Normandie (cider-based aperitif)
  • 14 oz Giffard Caramel Liqueur
  • 1 dash Fee Brothers Old Fashion Bitters
  • 1 slice apple (for garnish)
  • Glassware:
 Coupe cocktail glass (pre-chilled)

Measure all the liquid ingredients into a mixing glass then add ice to
 fill half way.
 Stir gently to chill and gently dilute (30 seconds)
Strain into prepared cocktail glass.
 Cut out some interesting shapes (like stars!) from the apple slice and 
float on top.

Wolowidnyks Note: “The wisp of peat smoke gently surrounds both the 
apple aperitif and apple liquor, accented by the aromatic spices of the
 old fashion bitters. This drink reminds me of having a baked apple over 
an open fire.”
