Drink Recipe: Ottawa Apple
Fall flavors for your first or last drink in World Showcase.
While it is very much contested in the Dis-munity whether to go right or left at the entrance to World Showcase, what’s pretty undeniable is that you get the Ottawa Apple in Canada when drinking around the world.
I recently had this drink during the International Food and Wine Festival, and discovered that it’s the perfect fall beverage — even if you’re not a huge whisky person. So here’s how to recreate it at home.
Yields 1 serving
2 ounces whisky
1 ounce apple schnapps or liqueur
1 spoonful maple syrup
4 ounces cranberry Juice
In a cocktail shaker, combine whisky and maple syrup. Shake thoroughly to combine.
Add apple schnapps and cranberry juice. Shake again.
Pour over ice and enjoy!
The original recipe we played with calls for Crown Royal Maple which is currently unavailable in the United States. We made our own Canadian Whisky with regular Crown Royal and maple syrup. Taste-wise, it’s spot on, but the maple syrup is more viscous than the whisky and gives it a weird texture. We suggest thinning it out in a pot beforehand.
