Enchanted Orchard (Death & Co. Recipe)


Now we are getting into those thoroughly fall-style cocktails with apple cinnamon flavors. I'm going to be going in this direction for several weeks, each post being progressively more autumnal. 

This cocktail is unusual among its brethren in having pisco be the main ingredients. Yes there is apple cinnamon and spice, but the pisco is very neutral and yet still a fruit brandy spirit. I like the addition of pineapple juice and applejack to produce an exotic apple taste without there being any fresh apple juice present. All in all, this is a chameleon of a cocktail. As soon as you think you have it figured out, the Benedictine  or the pineapple juice or honey snap your taste buds in a different direction. 

  • 1 1/2 oz. pisco (Capel used)
  • 1/2 oz. calvados (Laird's applejack 86 used)
  • 1/2 oz. Benedictine
  • 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. acacia honey syrup
  • 1 cinnamon stick garnish
Combine all liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a double rocks glass with one large ice cube. Garnish with the cinnamon stick.
