I love making simple syrups to complement holidays. It’s an easy, entertaining way to add excitement to the bar.

This Thanksgiving, I prepared an apple ginger simple syrup by steeping green apples and ginger in water and sugar.

Shake a little of this syrup with some vodka, and you have a dangerously tasty holiday cocktail.
