2 oz Wolfhound Irish Whiskey
1 oz Laird’s 100 Proof Apple Brandy
0.5 oz Walnut Liqueur
0.25 oz Simple Syrup
Stir ingredients with ice, strain into a glass over an ice cube. Garnish with apple slices.
NOTES: I may have gotten a little selfish on this one and wanted to get away from the overly froofy dessert flavors. *I* thought it was good, but no one else loved it on account of the brandy not actually tasting like apples and the overall giant-glass-of-booze thing that was going on. I’m biased when it comes to Irish whiskey, so while I really enjoyed it, I can see why others might not. I still like the idea of the Laird’s, the Irish and the walnut, but for mass consumption, I might replace the simple syrup with an apple shrub, dial back the walnut a little and reduce the overall volume of the drink altogether.
