2 oz. Laird’s Applejack
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. cinnamon simple syrup
2 oz. cloudy apple juice
Vernors ginger ale
Apple Slices for garnish

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a glass. Garnish with aplle slices.

This is another drink that was inspired by my childhood memories growing up in Michigan. The trips to the orchard to pick apples with my brother Dave which would find their way into one of my Aunt Dort’s homemade pies. There would always be a warm slice of pie accompanied by a Vernor’s Ginger-Ale float as a reward for our labor in the orchard. It is the combination of all these flavors, in a fortified sort of way that has led to the creation of the Pomme & Circumstance. See, one can find inspiration for a new drink in the craziest places…
