Apple Strudel Cocktail Recipe


  • 20ml bottlegreen Ginger & Lemongrass Cordial
  • 75ml apple juice
  • 35ml Cognac/Calvados or rum (For an optional additional festive flavour, soak over a handful of currants for 24 hours)
  • 7 ml vanilla extract
  • 3ml lemon juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick 3 inch

Method: Remove the currants from your alcohol and pour all ingredients into a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. Leave to rest for 5 minutes and then pour into a glass and garnish with a spun sugar net.

For a non-alcoholic version of this tipple, simply leave out the Cognac and increase the volume of apple juice.
