So, I had one of the best cocktails that I’ve ever had at the most unlikely of places, Hof’s Hut. Yes, Hof’s Hut. The local Hof’s Hut had advertised a cocktail called the Autumn Daydream in it’s fall menu. It is a mixture of Maker’s Mark, lemon juice, apple juice and cinnamon syrup. I had the opportunity to have a couple of them and had to reproduce the blessed elixir. Here’s what I came up with.
First, you’re going to have to make or procure cinnamon simple syrup. I made my own with the linked recipe. It is great in numerous recipes and is really delicious in this cocktail. Here is the complete recipe.
- 2 oz Maker’s Mark
- 2 oz Lemon Juice
- 2 oz Apple Juice
- 1 oz Cinnamon Syrup
Shake the cocktail and enjoy over ice.
My buddy Ty Smith asked, “Who the f goes to Hof’s Hut and gets a cocktail?”. He’s also the guy that said that this is one of the best cocktails that I’ve come up with. While not a Russ Turley original, my version is every bit as delicious as the original.
