The Best Kinds Of Apples For A Fruit-Forward Bourbon Cocktail
The fruity-boozy-duo of bourbon and apples can create cocktail recipes that are equal parts crisp, juicy, and sweet. To choose the best apple, look at the spirit's flavor profile.
If your preferred bourbon leans on the sweeter, more caramelized side of the spirit's flavor profile with notes of vanilla, fruit, toasted nuts, or honey, choose a sour apple.
Juicy and flavorful apple varieties like the Pink Lady are best if you intend to muddle fruit pieces to shake with other ingredients, strain, and serve.
