Starting tonight, the coffee bar will be adding hot cider to their drink lineup and to celebrate, we’ll be pouring free samples from 5-7pm. As with all our products made in-house, we use the same quality ingredients you find in our cases and on our shelves. The cider comes from Red Jacket Orchards in Seneca, NY and is 100% juice from New York apples.
The start of cider season also has us looking forward to breaking out the recipe for a Chimayo cocktail, one of the most unusually delicious cocktails we’ve tried and a perfect segue into fall.
1/4 oz lemon juice
1 1/4 oz premium tequila (we used Cabrito)
1 1/2 oz unfiltered apple cider
1/4 oz Creme de Cassis
apple wedges, thinly sliced (optional for garnish)
Add tequila, creme de cassis, cider and lemon juice to a shaker. Blend well and pour over ice into glass. Garnish with an apple wedge.
