Apple Whiskey Cocktail

This out-of-the-box boozy beverage is a cinch to make—but bursting with flavor.

Refreshing with just the right amount of tartness—this Horse Apple cocktail is the quintessential summer drink for any guy.

The richness of Dewar’s 12 Year Blended Scotch Whisky is brightened up by the acidity of green apple juice. And grated horseradish adds a surprising bit of complexity.
