Because it is autumn and fall and now more than ever we need long easy suppers to catch up, share good food and drink and generally avoid thinking about the changing weather. Enter this brand new Maple Apple Whisky Sour Cocktail. Or should that be a Thyme Maple Apple Whiskey Sour? You get the flavour point though, right?
So this Maple Apple Whisky Sour Cocktail Has
- Apple juice
- Lime juice
- Maple syrup
- Fresh thyme
- With extras like apple and lime slices (I know, I know, but they make it look so pretty)
What I love about this maple apple whisky sour is that it is super quick to make. It is a whisky sour without a shaker so needs only everyday equipment so easy to whip up. Plus, it comes seasonal flavours that celebrate autumn and winter. The apple juice adds a light fruitiness to the cocktail whilst the fresh thyme infuses a gorgeous citrusy aromatic scent and taste.
The rich caramel tones of the maple syrup are the perfect finish to this. This drink is a great to twist to a classic whisky Sour, is easy multiplied up and pairs well with several food types, so will make the perfect addition to any supper gathering.
I am about to host a surprise birthday supper for Freddy (here is hope he is not reading this), and will be pairing this cocktail with lots of easy fall salads, light pastry bites and apple and pear fruit desserts. My aim is to focus on easy foods and cocktails that can be prepared before the guests arrive, so I can spend more time chatting and less time cooking during the day. #brunchgoals. I think I am already sorted on the menu, the only thing left is the birthday present itself. Cue some panic shopping tomorrow morning…
