A cocktail to celebrate the Harvest Moon, appropriately with the same name.
This is a delicious, apple influenced drink for autumn.
I adapted this recipe from Diffords, who had adapted it from an Esquire Magazine article listing the ten most popular cocktails of 1934.
The Farmer’s Almanac tells us “For several evenings, the moonrise comes soon after sunset. This results in an abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening, which was a traditional aide to farmers and crews harvesting their summer crops.
Hence, it’s called the “Harvest Moon”.
