Apple Crisp Cocktail Recipe!


  • For the Cardamom-Infused Bourbon:
  • 1/4 cup green cardamom pods
  • 1 cup bourbon, such as Buffalo Trace
  • For the Cocktail:
  • 1 ounce Laird's 100 proof apple brandy (not Applejack)
  • 1/2 ounce Cardamom-Infused bourbon
  • 3/4 ounce fresh juice from 1 lemon
  • 3/4 ounce honey syrup (see note above)
  • Club soda
  • Garnish: lemon twist


  1. To make the Cardamom-Infused Bourbon: Place ¼ cup cardamom pods in a resealable jar. Crush with a wooden spoon to crack about half the pods (this can also be done in a mortar and pestle.) Top with 1 cup bourbon, shake, infuse for 1 1/2 hours at room temperature. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, discard solids, and re-bottle bourbon.

  2. To make the cocktail: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add apple brandy, cardamom-infused bourbon, lemon juice, and honey syrup. Shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds.
