Cocktail: Midnight Ride

On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

I made a drink today to commemorate Paul Revere’s Ride. The base liquor is from Massachusetts, where the ride took place, and the other ingredients are from three of its bordering states– all places that fought in the American Revolution.

Ingredients for two cocktails
5 oz Greylock Gin (MA)
1/2 oz Eau de Vie de Pomme from Warwick Valley Distillery (NY) (It is acceptable to use Laird’s Applejack as an alternative as it comes from NJ)
1/2 oz homemade maple syrup (CT)
4 droppersful Urban Moonshine Citrus Bitters (VT)

Chlll two martini glasses
Add ice to shaker
Add ingredients, swirl with wooden spoon, then shake
Pour & serve!

I also made a variant of this for my dad with 1 oz gin, 1/4 oz apple brandy, 1/2 oz maple syrup, and 1 dropper bitters on the rocks in a highball glass with soda to top it off.
