Cooperstown Harvest

 

The Cooperstown Harvest exemplifies the spirit of Cooperstown, which is known for its apple orchards. You can bring a little bit of New York state home with you with this cocktail that uses locally sourced ingredients, including Cooperstown’s very own Fly Creek Original Hard Cider. (But another hard cider will do in a pinch. We doubt you can find that awesome baseball skewer anywhere but Cooperstown, however.) Hawkeye’s bartender, Brian Douglass, encourages you to put your own spin on it. “Cocktail recipes should be looked at as guidelines. Each person’s taste is different, so you shouldn't be afraid to change a recipe to your personal taste.”

 

Ingredients

 1 ½ oz Beanball Bourbon
 ½ oz Apple Cider
 ¼ oz Apple Shrub or Apple Cider Vinegar
 ¼ oz Maple Syrup
 ¼ oz Fly Creek Original Hard Cider
 3-4 Leaves of Sage
 Thinly Sliced Apple Pieces (for garnish)

 

Directions

1

Take your sage and give it a firm slap. This will "wake up" your sage and primes the release of the sage oils. Place in a cocktail shaker.

2

Add syrup and shrub/vinegar to the shaker.

3

Add bourbon and cider to the shaker and add ice.

4

Shake vigorously for 30 seconds - just enough time for the sage to release oils into the cocktail.

5

Strain into rocks glass and top with hard cider.

6

Garnish with a slice of apple and another sage leaf.
