Fall Harvest Sangria

This recipe is one that we found at Boyer's after the Apple Harvest Festival this year.

https://www.boyercellars.com/

2 bottles of spiced apple wine
1 bottle of crab apple hard cider or any tart hard cider
2 cups of fresh cider
4 oz of Salted Caramel syrup(SC vodka or SC brandy can be used to punch it up.
3 fresh apples sliced

Stir together and lets sit for 24 hours.
Serve.
This will also be served along with the traditional Hot Buttered Rum for Trick or Treat again this year.
This sounds great. Looks like a cool place.

Autumn Drinks

Post by Artful Drunktective »

Chef Robert Irvine recipe. It sounds pretty cinnamony like something you make for the ladies on Badfellow's bearskin rug in front of the fireplace. But...I'd give it a try...roofie in it or not. Punkin Punch

Image

Side note: I would totally marry Robert.


Punkin Punch
1.5 parts Rye
.5 part All Spice Dram (acts kind of like the bitters)
.75 part Sweet Vermouth
1 part Spiced Pumpkin Syrup (see sub-recipe)
1.5 parts Unsweetened Iced Tea
Orange oil

Spiced Pumpkin Syrup
32 oz. Simple Syrup (1 part sugar 1 part water)
8-10 Cinnamon Sticks
4-6 Anise Stars
15 oz. Canned Pure Pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

MAKE IT
Place cinnamon sticks and anise stars into simple syrup while syrup is still warm. Allow at least an hour for the flavors to infuse into the simple syrup. For larger batches you can use fewer cinnamon sticks and anise stars. After the infusion, strain out the cinnamon and anise. Add the pumpkin, nutmeg and ground cinnamon and blend thoroughly.

Place the raw pumpkin simple syrup over light heat for about fifteen minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow the syrup to cool before using. (Optional: strain puree out for thinner texture and less pumpkin, more spice flavor.)

Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned

Image

Ingredients
Toasted Pecan Whiskey (Makes Enough For SIX Drinks)
• ½ cup pecans, , toasted
• 1 ½ cups whiskey, (a good drinking one!)

Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned
• 1 sugar cube, (or ½ teaspoon granulated sugar)
• 4 dashes Angostura bitters
• 2 oz. Toasted Pecan Whiskey, recipe above
• Spherical Ice Cube

Instructions
Make The Toasted Pecan Whiskey
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Place the pecans on a baking sheet. Transfer to the preheated oven.
Toast the pecans for 10-15 minutes or until browned and fragrant. (Keep an eye on them, as you could potentially burn them if not paying attention!)
Remove from the oven, and let cool to room temperature.
Transfer the cooled pecans to a mason jar, and pour the whiskey on top of them.
Let the whiskey infuse for 3-4 days. (Don't go any longer than 4 days, as the pecans could dry the whiskey out.)
Make The Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned
In an Old Fashioned or your favorite whiskey glass, measure the sugar cube/loose sugar and dash in the Angostura bitters.
Using a muddler, break down the sugar cube and combine it with the bitters, coating the sides of the glass as the sugar and bitters mix.
Place whiskey stones or a large ice cube, then pour the Toasted Pecan Whiskey over the cubes, swirling it to mix with the bitters and sugar mixture.
Enjoy immediately!

Notes
Please note that the total time does NOT include the 3-4 days where the pecans infuse in the whiskey.
The whiskey will produce 6 total cocktails. The Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned recipe is for one, though, so you can easily make more.
