Today I am sharing with all of you a delicious cocktail recipe from the great folks over at Nielsen-Massey. Looking for other recipes for the Fall and upcoming holiday season? If so, head on over to their website and check out their extensive recipe collection. The following recipe makes 1 martini.
Apple Pie Vanilla Syrup
1 cup apple juice
1 1/2 teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract
15 whole cloves
3 whole cinnamon sticks
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar
In a small saucepan, add juice, vanilla extract, cloves and cinnamon sticks; stir to combine. Cook over medium heat until juice is reduced by half. Carefully add sugars, cook and stir until sugars are melted; remove from heat. Completely cool and strain before use. Refrigerate unused syrup in an airtight container. Apple Pie Syrup is also a great addition to a hot mug of apple cider.

1/2 fl. oz. apple pie liqueur
