Not so much a “Tiki” drink as I usually post, this recipe is in honor of the Asbury Park Boardwalk’s Weekend Tiki Festival going on right now in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
The Asbury Park Cocktail
I couldn’t find much info on where this drink originated, although by the ingredients, I’d have to guess it’s a mid-20th century concoction, maybe leaning closer to the 1930s. It’s a simple recipe that’s perfect for this time of year.
1 1/2 oz brandy
1/2 oz apple brandy
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
Shake over rocks, strain into a Martini glass. Serve straight up; Optionally garnish with a slice of fresh red apple and cinnamon stick. To make it more of a “Tiki” drink, serve it in a Tiki mug!
