Every day a different drink. Not just how to make them, but a detailed review of how they actually taste, photos of the drinks, and stories along the way. Starting from the beginning, The Bartender's Black Book will be our guide, taking us
(and our livers) on a journey from which we may never recover. Cheers!

#83: Apple Pie
1/2 oz Apple Cider or Apple Juice
Combine in a mixing glass with ice
Strain into a chilled glass
Sprinkle with cinnamon
Does it get more American than this? Well, yes, this uses Vodka, but apples are American, aren't they?
Anyway, I debated which glass I should use to serve this in, and opted for something other than a standard cocktail glass. Something more American, more middle American.
I wasn't sure if this really tasted like apple pie, but it sure came pretty close. I used Apple Vodka for a more intense apple flavor. Regular vodka might have given this more of a bite, but the cinnamon really put this over the top.
Yummy and easy to drink.
I like that Target is doing its part to prepare the next generation of scholars…
And Bed Bath & Beyond is even getting in on the act. I guess you need these for all the weight you will gain when you play multiple rounds of beer pong:
