Apple is a classic fall flavor—here we highlight it in a fizzy sipper you can riff on two ways: with or without alcohol. Both versions of the drink feature a spiced apple syrup made with fall spices, lemon, and ginger, along with walnut bitters and soda. To make it a true special-occasion cocktail, serve it over mixologist-worthy round Craft Ice™ from the LG STUDIO InstaView Refrigerator.
To make a non-alcoholic version, use Seedlip Spice 94, which has aromatic notes similar to gin. Traditional gin fizzes use egg white, but in this cocktail we leave it out and rely on soda for the fizz. —Posie (Harwood) Brien
