The Gatling Gun Cocktail

Serves: Makes 1 cocktail
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


1 1/2 ounce aged brandy, such as Copper & Kings Floodwall Apple Brandy 
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice 
1/2 ounce simple syrup
Ice cubes
3 ounces Foggy Ridge Serious Cider 
Long lemon peel spiral, for garnish


Combine the brandy, lemon juice and simple syrup in a shaker. Add ice cubes and shake vigorously until chilled. Double-strain the cocktail by holding a small, conical fine mesh strainer between the shaker tin with a Hawthorne strainer (or a cobbler shaker with its built-in strainer) and a champagne flute. Pour the cocktail through both strainers into the glass. Top with the cider. Garnish with the lemon peel spiral and serve immediately.
