Coaster 2 Coaster: The Minnesota Cocktail

I hope that you have been enjoying the Coaster 2 Coaster series as much as I have! (My liver may disagree but...that's ok)

Today I introduce to you the Minnesota cocktail C/O of the lovely Lindsey from The Curly Diaries!

The Honeycrisp Apple Cocktail


Hi, I'm Lindsey! I'm the blogger behind The Curly Diaries a life + style blog based in Minneapolis, Minnesota I love living in the Twin Cities and was so excited to mix up a fabulous cocktail in tribute to the wonderful state of Minnesota! Who doesn't love a delicious cocktail, and this one is absolutely perfect for summer!



Fun fact: the honeycrisp apple was created {yes you read that right, created} at the University of Minnesota, and has recently been named the state fruit of Minnesota. PLUS, the honeycrisp apple is delicious. Because of this, I felt it was the perfect inspiration for a Minnesota cocktail! 






Ingredients
2 oz. Apple Infused Vodka
Hard Cider
1 tablespoon Honey
Lemon
Lime
Diced Honeycrisp Apples
Ice

Method
Pour honey, 2 oz. apple vodka over ice. Top remainder of your glass with hard cider. Add the squeeze of a lemon and a squeeze of a lime, and stir until everything is well mixed. Top it off with a pixie straw and voila! Enjoy on a hot day with friends on the patio. This drink is the perfect balance between sweet and tart, just like a honeycrisp apple!
