Apple Jelly cocktail

20130818-162139.jpg

We have a backyard apple tree that has never been a good producer. However, due to the drought last summer, all of the apple trees got a good rest and this year everyone is reporting bumper crops. So too with our tired old apple. Whereas normally it only produces enough apples for the squirrels, this year the branches are weighed down with fruit. I simply had to make apple jelly. And thus this cocktail!

1 1/2 oz vodka
1 oz applejack or Calvados
2 tsp apple jelly
1/4 tsp Peychaud’s bitters

Shake well and stain into ice-filled jelly jar.
