The Perfect Fall Drink
First off, did you know that Gilt now has a Gilt Taste? So cool! They have everything from seafood to wine to cheese to an amazing pantry section with oils and vinegars...I could go on and on. But, what I really got excited about on my last visit was their recipe section where I found this fall drink, the Sidewalker. I don't typically drink beer but this sounds amazing!

Makes 1 cocktail
1 ounce apple brandy (such as Laird's)
¾ ounce lemon juice
½ ounce maple syrup
¼ ounce apple cider vinegar
Cold wheat beer (such as Hefeweizen or Weihenstephaner hefeweissbier)
Lemon wedge, to garnish
Pour the brandy, lemon juice, maple syrup and vinegar into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake. Strain the cocktail into a chilled, tall glass and top with beer. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
The above recipe is straight from Gilt Taste and there are links in the recipe to maple syrup and apple cider that you can purchase straight from Gilt.
