Author Notes: The idea for this drink comes from Tara Duggan, who wrote about apple peel-infused bourbon, spiced with a bit of cinnamon and clove, in her cookbook, Root to Stalk. (Get the recipe here: It's perfect for strangely hot fall days when Mercury is in retrograde and you want to simultaneously pick apples and sit on a beach somewhere with a cool, fizzy drink. I'm in love with the idea of a cold fall-spiced drink -- it's as good a reason as any to peel a bunch of apples and stock up on ginger beer.Marian Bull

Serves: one

  • Apple peel-infused bourbon
  • Ginger beer
  • Lime
  1. Pour a shot of bourbon into a rocks glass with ice -- it's best to use big fat square ice cubes, I think. Top with ginger beer and a squeeze of lime. That's all, folks.
