The Liberty cocktail is simple and sweet, but not in the usual fruity/candy way so many drinks are. This cocktail is almost straight alcohol, so there’s nothing frou-frou about the Liberty. It’s definitely got a bite.
Liberty is wonderful for sipping along during a quiet evening when you just want one cocktail to relax you. It’s also an easy pre-mixer for parties. Serve it with goodies or sip it when you’re just planning to have s drink or two.
- 2 ounces Calvados apple brandy
- 1 ounce light rum
- 1/4 ounce simple syrup
- Squeeze of lime (optional)
Shake everything with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime wedge if you like.
