New Year’s Balm

In this simple cocktail, sweet notes of apple and honey are tempered with tart lemon juice and a hint of rosemary — rumored to be one of Drambuie’s secret ingredients.

Yields one cocktail

2½ ounces Drambuie
1 ounce apple cider
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce lemon juice
1 drop Angostura bitters
1 sprig of rosemary
Seltzer water
Apple slices dipped in honey for garnish

1) Combine first five ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass.

2) Top with a splash of seltzer and garnish with a thin slice of honey-dipped apple.
