Lemon Mint Marrakesh cocktail created by Patrick Austin at Sanafir, Vancouver

Photo by Tracey Kusiewicz

1 oz. Apple Liqueur/1 oz. Cointreau/1 tsp unsweetened apple sauce/6 leaves of fresh mint/4 oz. fresh sweetened lemonade

Combine ingredients, and shake together. pour over ice in cocktail glass (rimmed with sugar and cinnamon). Garnish with mint and lemon.  

reasoning:

looks yummy. like an apple-lemonade. apple liqueur is too sweet for my taste, but i imagine the sugar & cinnamon rim would balance and spice the drink up. i like that he didn’t choose to add vanilla vodka or liqueur along with star anise, as i’ve seen many ‘appletini’ recipes have – that sweet, foamy flavor kind of makes me kind of nauseous. this, however, looks completely tasty. the name is also great, if drinking this could make me feel like i’m in marrakesh, i am totally down and will be downing these by the gallon. god, i need to be in the city bartending already. if anyone has apple liqueur lying around and gets to try this out, please let me know how it is.
