School’s out, vacations have started, and the days and nights of sultry summer have begun. Here at VODA we think the best way to beat the heat is with a crisp, cool cocktail and this one from The INN located in Vermont fits the bill perfectly!
- 1.5 oz dried apricot-infused brandy
- 1.5 oz whiskey
- 2 oz home-made sour mix
- Orange slice
- Maraschino cherry
To infuse the brandy, simply soak a bottle of standard brandy overnight with dried apricots. The longer the soak the better; it won’t go bad.
For the sour mix, make a standard simple syrup and mix that 1:1 with lemon/lime juice and two egg whites in a mason jar.
Leave enough room in the jar to shake with air.
Garnish with orange slice and cherry.
There’s still time to book a summer getaway to the INN. Located in beautiful Montgomery Center, Vermont, this quaint inn has just 11 rooms. Its surroundings are picturesque and provide the perfect setting for relaxing and sipping on a summer cocktail. The INN is offering a “Three Nights for the Price of Two” package now.
