Calvados is a French apple brandy from Normandy.  Combined with the maple syrup we brought home from our last trip to Maine, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, we ended up with up a cocktail that had us longing for Fall – and pancakes!

Ingredients
  • 1½ oz calvados (or apple brandy)
  • 1 oz. maple syrup (grade A)
  • ½ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • ice cubes
  • green apple slices
Instructions
  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the calvados, maple syrup, lemon juice and ice and shake for 10 seconds. Strain into glass filled with ice and add the green apple slices as a garnish.

If you have a mandolin slicer you can make these cute cross-section slices that show off the star shaped apple core. Also, don't throw away your apple garnish after you finish your drink - it's delicious after having been soaking in the cocktail.
