Crispin Cider Cocktails


The Doubletree
Ingredients: Crispin Brut, Hendrick's Gin, Lime garnish, ice, rocks glass

Preparation: Into a rocks glass with ice, combine 1 part Hendrick's
and 2 parts Crispin Brut. Stir and garnish with a lime wedge.
The Swedish Orchard
4-5 ice cubes
1 shot Aquavit, preferably O.P.
4 shots Crispin Original Hard Apple Cider
5-7 fresh Lingonberries for garnish
Smooth drink with plenty of kick but refreshing after taste.

Highball with Ice
1.5 shot Makers Mark
Fill rest with Crispin
Garnish with Lime
Stone Fence

2 oz Mt. Gay Silver Eclipse Rum
4 oz Crispin Original cider

Build over ice in a double rocks glass. Enjoy.
The Stone Fence harkens back to Colonial America, with hard cider being one of the few alcoholic drinks made in the colonies and either New England or Caribbean rum available as well. While this drinks has roots that go back to the earliest days of America, I think this drink fits perfectly with a modern outdoor barbecue. One of my favorite drinks.
