¼ cup fresh apple juice
1 T. simple syrup
½ T. fresh lemon juice
Rim the cocktail glass with sugar. Pour apple juice, simple syrup, and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake. Strain into the glass and add the apple slices on top. Yield: 1 serving.
Note: To make simple syrup, use equal amounts of water and sugar. Heat water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until hot but not boiling. Add the sugar and stir until fully dissolved. Let the syrup cool to room temperature before using. Can be stored in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
