Apple Cocktail – The Bittersweet Dapple

A lovely little Apple Cocktail Recipe which we have called  The Bittersweet Dapple Apple

So this is an autumnal tipple with berries and lovely apples. Think sweet apples and sharp blackberries. really so delicious.

I’m also guessing you could probably make it with Elderflower cordial instead of the liqueur,  but I didn’t have any to hand to try.

It’s a serious Apply cocktail, quite sweet but lovely as you get a lovely taste of a sharp blackberry. Do you go out and pick Blackberries? I try to but don’t always manage it. If you do – freeze them individually before ou bag them, that way they retain their shape!

Better than a crumble I say!!!
