Bitter Candied Apple

Bitter Candied Apple

Recipe courtesy Zack Bezunartea, beverage director, Boqueria, Washington, D.C.

This easy sipper combines mellow Jack Daniel’s whiskey with plenty of apple cider and Licor 43, a vanilla-tinged Spanish liqueur.

  • 4 ounces apple cider
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice
  • 1½ ounces Jack Daniel’s
  • ¾ ounce Licor 43
  • 3 dashes of Angostura bitters

Pour the apple cider and lemon juice into a saucepan, heating until just before the liquid boils. Turn off the heat, add the next two ingredients and stir. Pour into a mug and add the Angostura bitters just before serving. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
