The solution? Get that daily serving of fruit in cocktails. Enter: the Spiced Apple from Cedar Grove mixologist Trevor Landry. Make your own or stop into the new eatery on Cedar Springs during weekend brunch to get a fancy one — they use a full apple as a garnish. That'll keep the doctor away, and you won't have to deal with fruit flies at home.
