This classic drink is a mix of apple brandy, Benedictine (an herb-and-spice-based spirit originally made by monks), and lemon juice; it's shaken over ice and served in martini glasses.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare garnishes: Cut rounds from fruit leather with a 1 3/4-inch diameter canape or cookie cutter, then use the same cutter to cut a crescent from the edge. Make a small slit, on a slant, in the center of the inside curve.

  • Prepare drinks: Combine the remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker, and fill with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain and serve immediately in chilled glasses. Slide the fruit-leather crescents onto the rims of the glasses.

Cook's Notes

This cocktail is also delicious served on the rocks. Garnish with thin slices of apple instead of fruit-leather crescents, if you like.
