Apple Fizzies

Or use apple juice mixed with club soda

We’re still on an apple kick, but we’re cheating a bit this week. We saw apple soda at the grocery and thought it’d make a nice basis for a fun adult beverage. We’d had a drink with pecan soda at a swank place over the summer or the idea probably never would have occurred to us. Don’t have apple soda? A mix of sparkling water and juice to your desired potency should suffice.

Spiced Apple Fizzy

  • 1 oz spiced or regular rum
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • juice from half a lime
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • apple soda

In a tumbler, stir honey, juice and liquors until incorporated. Add ice. Top with apple soda and garnish with lime.

Kentucky-Style Apple Fizzy

  • 1 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • squeeze lime
  • apple soda

Mix bitters, bourbon and orange juice in the bottom of a tumbler. Add ice. Top with apple juice and squeeze of lime.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    Is apple soda the same as sparkling apple cider? The Martinellies here in Watsonville , California make a great sparkling apple juice.
