It’s definitely autumn. The frost in the mornings, that low angle golden light in the afternoon playing through the falling leaves. You can’t help but think of the bounty of the harvest and, for me, all the apple things. Cider, turnovers, dried slices, apple butter and fine fall cocktails. So, please join me now as we stand and make the Montparnasse.
It has turned off chilly here, so I was looking for something autumnal, as one does. A quick peek in the fridge revealed that I had some fresh apple cider left and that dictated the rest of my choices. So, please, won’t you join me now as we stand and make Degroff’s Harvest Moon.
Procrastination is what brings us together this evening. I had the best of intentions, I really did. There I was busily paving the road to hell,but time has a way of getting away from us, leaving us with broken dreams and rushed cocktail posts. It was a crazy day on the farm and at work and after work and pretty much right up till the moon rose high above stately Monkey Manor. A full October moon and a haggard monkey mean one thing, a super easy to throw together drink and phoned in commentary. So please join me now as we stand and make the Apple Shochu Cocktail.
