Lance's favorite fall drink recipe -- Falcon Punch

The drink combines housemade apple and pear infused gin, cinnamon simple syrup, unfiltered apple juice and apple brandy, ginger beer, lemon juice, and a dash of bitters — served on the rocks.


Falcon Punch Recipe, makes one drink

1.5 ounces apple pear gin (recipe below)

1/4 ounce cinnamon syrup (recipe below)

1/4 ounce lemon juice

1/2 ounce apple brandy (I recommend Captain Apple Jack)

2 dashes Angostura bitters

1 ounce unfiltered apple juice

1 ounce ginger beer

Add ingredients to glass with ice. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.


Apple-Pear Infused Gin

1 750ml bottle of gin (Laura uses Plymouth Gin)

4-5 apples (Gala, Granny Smith — whatever looks the best that day)

1 pear

1/4 pound dried pears

Cut the apples and pears into quarters. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and cover. Let the fruit and gin infuse for about 10 days. Strain.


Cinnamon Simple Syrup

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

4 cinnamon sticks

Bring water, sugar and cinnamon sticks to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes. Take off the heat and let infuse for 10 minutes. Syrup will thicken slightly and turn a golden brown color.
