Playing John’s Cran-Apple Cosmo


  • 1 ounce apple-infused vodka (to make your own, steep a bunch of apple slices in vodka for about 2 weeks, then strain)
  • A splash organic cranberry juice
  • A splash hard cider
  • Simple syrup
  • 1 cinnamon stick


Serves: 1 drink


Make a simple syrup infused with the cinnamon stick by combining 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon sticks in a small pot. Heat over high heat until the sugar melts. Remove from heat and let cool.

In a cocktail shaker with ice, combine vodka and cranberry juice with simple syrup to taste. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, top with a splash of hard cider and garnish with a very thin slice of apple floating on top.
