The Hudson Highland Cup

The Hudson Highland Cup

Originally from The Tippling Brothers


2 oz Highland Park 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (I used Old Crow like a good Gugisberg granddaughter)
1 teaspoon apple butter  (my favorite recipe here)
1 oz fresh lemon juice
0.75 oz maple syrup
1 dash Pastis  (anise?  Really?  I didn't have any and wouldn't have used it anyway)
Hard cider  (Newton's Apple from Trader Joe's)

Add all ingredients except the hard cider to a shaker and fill with ice.  I use a scale for this, jiggers are nice, scales are better.  Shake, and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Top with hard cider and garnish with an apple slice if desired.

Drank while watching Labyrinth (a friend's first time seeing it!).  What a movie---and you can't forget  David Bowie's epic proportions, ha.
