1 oz Shine white whiskey
0.5 oz Laird’s 100 Proof Apple Brandy
1.5 oz Spodee
3 oz Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale
Shake Shine, Spodee and Laird’s well with ice, then pour over ice cubes into a frosted mug. Add the ale and stir gently.
NOTES: I’m not totally sure what drove me to try combining the most hillbilly-themed ingredients we had on the shelf, but I’m pretty glad I did. It was hot as hell this past weekend, and this drink went with it perfectly. Really refreshing and light with a great flavor to it. The Spodee is turning out to be a lot more versatile than I expected of a fortified wine. Next time I’m in a place where playing horseshoes is an option, I’ll be making a batch of these.
