Sin Killer

Sin Killer makes you think about absolution and it will release you from guilt, obligation and punishment. Unfortunately it’s temporary, lasting only as long as you drink them, but it’s fun while it lasts! You must seek permanent forgiveness elsewhere, but these are comforting on a cold winter’s night with a roaring fireplace and a good book.

Apple brandy is the base of our cocktail, sweetened with ginger infused honey syrup and tempered by orange and angostura bitters. I think it’s fitting the apple, source of original sin, in its distilled form also provides relief  from that knowledge. It’s the inspiration for the name because I’m sure all the ingredients were there. It wasn’t called the garden of eatin’ for nothing. Print
