  • Use a variety of apples if possible. Cooking a combination of sweet and tart fruits will create a deep and robust flavor.
  • Don’t forget the orange! It adds further depth to the flavor profile, blending nicely with the spices.
  • Looking for something with a little more kick? Chill for an hour before serving, pour over ice with a shot of Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey! Garnish with a Cinnamon Stick and a slice of fresh apple and enjoy responsibly.
