Apple of My Eye

We love this local apple brandy so much that we made not one, but two cocktails with it

Cheers to the holiday season with Of The Earth Farm Distillery’s signature product - their apple brandy. The distillery, based in the rolling hills of Richmond in northwest Missouri, picks the apples from their orchard and turns the forbidden fruit into a sweet, barrel-aged spirit. Both of the following cocktail recipes feature local products and are the perfect refreshments to get you in the holiday spirit.
