Episode 29: How About Them Apples – Calvados Cocktails

There are a couple of things to note about the Calvados Cocktail. One, it does in fact have Calvados in it so no misdirection there. Two, there is a whole lot of orange-flavor in this one, with orange juice, Cointreau, and orange bitters. I am not sure if the Calvados Cocktail gives you any Vitamin C, but hey, there is no harm in trying it if you want to get tipsy while fighting a cold.

An apple brandy, Calvados is only Calvados if it comes from the Normandy region. This French cousin to the American Applejack doesn’t show up in a ton of cocktails, but does make appearances in some of note like the Avenue.

Join us as we explore this almost entirely fruit-based cocktail, breaking down each ingredient and their appearances in the cocktail world.
