A Cocktail For The Good Times

The apple harvest at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley.

The apple harvest at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley.

Our orchard at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley had quite the comeback season. After three years of devastating spring frosts, this year we had an outstanding harvest of cherries, plums, peaches, pears, apricots and apples.

So we created a drink that combines the best of Tygh Valley, fresh picked fruit from the orchard and vodka mashed with the malting barley we grow on the farm.

THE COMEBACK KID

Ingredients:
1.5 ounces Rogue Oregon Single Malt Vodka
Half ounce Allspice liqueur
Half ounce lemon juice
1.5 ounces Rogue Fruit Salad Cider
Dash of baked apple bitters

Preparation:
Combine the ingredients in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake and then strain into another glass filled with ice. Garnish with a slice of red apple.

As farmers and fermenters, we know that things don’t always go as planned. We have some of the world’s best orchard terroir here in Tygh Valley and we never gave up on our apples and other fruit. So when things finally went our way, the taste is especially sweet.
