Harvest Cocktail (Original Recipe)


There's a Thanksgiving cocktail and a whole number of fall cocktails like the Grand Autumn, but I found it strange that harvest is not recognized. It should be, and it should be with a done with a rustic tasting cocktail with whiskey and end-of-summer flavors like apricot. 

This fall cocktail takes its inspiration from the many that have gone before. It is strong and rich, but palate cleansing at the same time with lemon and tea tannins. You get lavender and bergamot flavors from the Earl Gray tea infused into the MurLarkey three tea whiskey. The other teas, English Breakfast and Darjeeling, make for a deeper caramel color and nutty taste. The cocktail is bright and citrusy, but finishes crisp like dried leaves and fall aromas.

  • 1 1/2 oz. MurLarkey three tea whiskey
  • 3/4 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • several dashes of brown sugar syrup
  • maraschino cherry garnish

Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherry.
