A few years ago, when I was visiting friends in New York, I bought a bottle of Absolut Brooklyn, an apple- and ginger-flavoured vodka that came in an incredibly cool bottle depicting a typical Brooklyn brownstone building. We enjoyed many a night sipping it whilst sitting on the rooftop of my friend’s apartment overlooking the Empire State Building. Great memories, and my inspiration for this cocktail.
- 2 cups (500 ml) apple juice (use the cloudy type if you can)
- 2 cups (500 ml) cranberry juice
- 100 ml vodka
- 2 cups (500 ml) ginger ale
- Ice, to serve
- Place the apple juice, cranberry juice and vodka in a blender and whizz until pale pink and frothy. Pour into a large serving jug, add the ginger ale and a good handful of ice. Serve immediately.
