Say goodbye to 2022 and hello to 2023 with this cocktail, courtesy of Dr. Elixir.

Serves One

1 oz. bourbon

½ oz. dark rum

½ oz. aged rum

½ oz. orange juice

½ oz.  apple brandy

8 drops of shiso bitters (or any type of herbaceous bitter)

1 apple slice (for garnish)

Place one ice cube in a glass then pour in all ingredients. Stir. Garnish with an apple slice. Sip and enjoy. Happy new year!

Disclaimer: In our tasting panel of three men and three women, the women found this drink to be too strong for their liking (and trust us, they like a strong drink). So you may want to have a nice bottle of their favorite sparkling wine available for the female guests in your party.
