Drink Me, You Will Recipe
If you’re looking for a drink that will make you feel like the wise Jedi master Yoda, look no further than this bright green concoction from bartender Bryan Galligos.
Galligos uses a bunch of smashed basil to give the drink its requisite flush of green, reminiscent of Yoda’s signature skin tone. Sage simple syrup is a nod to Yoda’s wisdom, and a couple of those leaves make a nice, perky Yoda ear garnish.
Apple brandy is often thought of as a fall spirit, and for a good reason—Calvados, the apple brandy used in this cocktail, is produced in Normandy, France, where the climate is cool and damp, ideal for growing apples.
This cocktail amplifies the apple notes of the Calvados with fresh-squeezed apple cider, making it a refreshing and flavorful drink.
1½ oz. Calvados
1 oz. Apple cider
½ oz. Sage simple syrup
½ oz. Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
Sage leaves for garnish
Add all ingredients (except the sage leaves) into a cocktail shaker with ice.
Strain in a coupe or martini glass and garnish with sage leaves.
