MacIntosh Cocktail

Fall is well underway here in Madtini-ville, but being so close to Lake Ontario we haven’t seen the wide variance of fall colors amongst the leaves that you might see if you drove north of the GTA (Greater Toronto area) or southeast to upper New York State and the rest of New England. In fact, as I ran out to collect maple leaves in the area I was frustrated to find a few golden leaves but nothing at all in the crimson red variety.

Well, despite the lack of colorful leaves, we were still inspired by this drink recipe post on the Cape Cod Today website. This turned out to be a pleasant surprise and one of the most taste-balanced drinks we have tried out recently.


  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Canadian Club
  • 1 oz Sour Apple Liqueur
  • 2 oz Cranberry Juice

Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a slice of apple.
