Apple Pie Mojito

Apple Pie Mojito // Feast + West

With Thanksgiving under a week away, it’s time to really start thinking about the most important part of the meal: pie. I’ll be making one for my own gathering, but I haven’t yet decided which kind. I’m thinking pumpkin or chocolate. Maybe two pies? Maybe both rolled into one?! I have a few more days to decide, thank goodness.

Apple pie has often been a staple at our Thanksgiving celebrations. My mom makes a mean apple pie with hidden whole cloves tucked inside for an extra strong flavor. This cocktail easily evokes all the sweetness and warmth of this fall dessert, making it the perfect drink to kickstart your holiday gathering next week. You’ll need two kinds of apple plus limes and fresh mint to pack into this fruity libation. The apple brings a welcome autumnal twist to this summer classic that will have your guests asking for more. // susannah

The apple brings a welcome autumnal twist to this summer classic that will have your guests asking for more.

Ingredients

  • juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 10 mint leaves
