Friday Cocktail: The Irish Apple

Ah, long, hot, balmy evenings, how I love you.

Seeing as our beautiful British summer is at its peak, I've spent the day longing for a refreshing, fruity cocktail with a little something-something (I believe this is pronounce "suh-in suh'in" if you're cool) to give it an invigorating kick.

When we told you about Wild Geese Irish Whiskey a couple of weeks back, we were seriously impressed by their tasty creations, and they've been kind enough to send us another epic cocktail to see you through this glorious summer night.

It's super easy but big on flavour, and drinking it feels a bit like putting a hazy, satisfyingly chilled out Instagram filter onto your entire life. You can learn how to make it by viewing the video above, or have a read of the recipe below:

The Irish Apple cocktail recipe


1. Mix the Classic Blend whiskey, dry cider and apple & rhubarb juice by ‘rolling’ them in a cocktail shaker. 
2. Pour into a highball glass and float a large ice ball on top. 
3. Add the Kamms & Sons to create a bittersweet taste and - if you've got time - garnish with a crab apple and apple blossom. Drizzle fresh caramel over the garnish for the final touch.

If you haven't got crab apples to hand, use a slice of fresh apple and drizzle a little caramel sauce on that.

Wild Geese Classic Blend is available from The Whisky Exchange for the web exclusive price of £18.45.
