Recipe: Barnstormer’s Cider

The Barnstormer’s Cider Cocktail is the featured drink in Episode 17 “Colonizers and Cranberry Sauce”. We went absolutely nuts over this cocktail. It’s crisp, refreshing, and perfect for Fall. It also has a fair amount of alcohol so it should definitely be in your emergency kit for family get-togethers.

Ingredients:
1 c. thinly sliced Green, Yellow, and Red Apples
1 Navel Orange, thinly sliced
1 c. Apple Juice
2 tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 c. Brandy (we built this recipe using Tamworth Distillery’s Barnstormer’s Punch Brandy)
22 oz. Hard Cider of your choice (we used North Country Original Press)

Directions:
In a pitcher, combine apples, orange, apple juice, lemon juice, and brandy. Stir and let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill. Just before serving, add the hard cider. Serve in a tall glass over ice.

Makes 6-8 servings, depending on how thirsty the crowd is. You WILL want seconds.
