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

#84: Apple Pie (floater)
3/4 oz Cinnamon Schnapps
3/4 oz Irish Cream
Layer the ingredients into the glass in the order listed
I like apple pie. Especially at Thanksgiving. I did not like this drink. The Apple Brandy and the Cinnamon Schnapps did not separate well, and the Irish Cream, although it floated well at the top, actually solidified a bit and became a sort of semi-solid lump. Quite gross, like some sort of sweet oyster floating in apples and cinnamon.
The overall flavors did nothing for me. They weren't distinct enough, and all I could taste was the cinnamon. Everything was too sweet, and it sort of grossed me out. It had quite a bite though. The brandy gave some depth, but I would not recommend this for any occasion.
Someone has figured out that there are only so many bad guys to go around. I think I work with most of them. See if you can spot people in your life from this cast of characters:
