The recipe below is from Gotham Bar & Grill, by way of Tuthilltown Spirits. I substituted Harvest Spirits’s Core Vodka and Cornelius Applejack instead of Tuthilltown’s Heart of the Hudson vodka and Busnel Calvados.
I don’t need a quart of spiced syrup, and so adjusted the recipe a bit.
- 1 c. simple syrup
- 4 cloves
- a pinch of fennel seed
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 cinnamon stick
