Recipe: Apple/Pear Sour Cocktail | Recipes | Hudson Valley | Chronogram Magazine

Gardiner Liquid Mercantile is always experimenting with new ideas for their homemade cocktails. Their apple/pear sour—aka: A Clockwork Apple—is the first cocktail they made using Gable's Apple Brandy as the base spirit. Over time, they developed the mix drink until the flavors were as close to perfect as they could get it. Originally an egg-white sour, they swapped egg whites with Aquafaba (chickpea water) to make the drink vegan and form a balanced foam at the top. Plus, Gardiner Liquid Mercantile makes its own apple brandy with local apples and sell it at the bar/restaurant for $25 a bottle. So buy that brandy, heed the following recipe, and drink up!

A Clockwork Apple

1 1/2 oz. GLM Apple-Brandy

3/4 oz. Pear liqueur

1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

3/4 oz. Agave Syrup

2-3 Dashes Baked Apple Bitters

Aromatic Bitters Spray
