Late Harvest Cider

"My mom's from the South, so Chess Pie is a staple," Sunny McElwain of Terrene says. "It was the biggest challenge because it's such a delicately flavored pie. I didn't want to overpower it. I thought apples and apricots would pair well, and the Tuaca has a nice vanilla flavor that balances out the acidity of the drink."

Serves | 1 |

  • ¾ cup apple cider (cider from Schwartz Orchard in Centralia, Ill., recommended)
  • 1 oz Domaine de Canton
  • ½ oz Rothman & Winter Orchard apricot liqueur
  • ½ oz Tuaca
  • apple, sliced very thin

| Preparation | Heat cider to desired temperature and add the Canton, apricot liqueur and Tuaca. Stir and serve with a thin slice of apple floating on top.
