On a blustery day in Dallas, why not combat the wind and the slight chill with a little bit of a liquor coat, courtesy of Meddlesome Moth's Windy Apple?
This perfect cold-weather cocktail doesn't boast a long list of ingredients, but the ingredients are anything but simple. The base, bourbon, is made a bit more interesting thanks to a brown butter infusion that offers up a slightly unctuous, rich mouthfeel. Frankly, it made us miss the fat-washed cocktail trend that swept Dallas a couple of years back.
Windy Apple ($12): brown butter-infused bourbon, apple bitters, cinnamon, cider syrup
