FALLING LEAVES

The fall whiskey cocktail series continues with the "Falling Leaves." Like most people, I love when the leaves change so I thought of this garnish and then built the drink. This combination of fall fruits and spices really captured the feeling of Autumn.

For the drink:

-1 1/2 oz Japanese whiskey (Nikka Coffey Malt)

-1/2 oz Calvados (Chauffe-Coeur VSOP)

-1/2 oz pear liqueur (Clear Creek Pear Liqueur)

-1/3 oz allspice dram (St. Elizabeth)

-3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

-1/3 oz honey simple syrup

-1 dash autumn bitters


Garnish:

Lime peel

Lemon peel

Grapefruit peel


Glassware:

Fizz


Add the drink ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 10 seconds. Pour through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer. Garnish.
