First Kiss On A Ferris Wheel

October 15, 2014

Author Notes: Every year in Toronto, towards the end of summer, the city hosts the Canadian National Exhibition. There are rides, games, shopping centres, food trucks, and most importantly, carmel apples. I love carmel apples. I REALLY love carmel apples. I love them so much, in fact, that I decided to think up a brunch cocktail that would pay homage to the sweet treat, especially for suckers like me who were stuck bartending brunch instead of riding the Zipper over and over again like some big, mildly drunk child. This drink is perfect as a sweet, post-brunch bev, and would also probably make a killer shooter if you tweaked the measurements a bit. Wyatt Shorter
