Apple Core Bourbon

[Ronna Welsh shared sustainable ways of wasting less in the kitchen with The Splendid Table. She breaks down an apple into four acts: Apple Core AgrodolceShallot Apple Core AgrodolceApple Core Mostarda and Apple Core Bourbon.]

Cocktail is a favorite Purple Kale category for uses of things that are Otherwise, Trash. Here, we combine Apple Core Agrodolce (a sweet and sour sauce) with excellent brandy for a drink–hot or cold–that takes you right through fall.

For each drink…

Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add bourbon and agrodolce. Stir. Rub the herb stem around the rim of the glass and drop in.
