Many thanks to my Seattle drinking friend for today’s cocktail. After all the hullabaloo with debates and elections, it seemed appropriate for something appropriately American. The A.V. Club says this drink was developed by Laura Kelton of Sportsman’s Club in Chicago, and I give her a solid tip of he hat. Although my husband and I disagreed about whether this was a summer drink (lime) or a fall drink (apple and ginger), we both agreed it’s tasty. I can easily imagine sipping this next to a fall bonfire or on the beach during a sunset. Considering that our Northwest summer lasts well into October, this may well be the perfect Portland drink.
