Harvard on the Hocking

Drink, Recipes

Josh Gandee recommends this autumnal cocktail to those craving a taste of the season. The drink is reminiscent of a Manhattan but with more effervescence. “If you’re comfortable drinking things like rye or bourbon, you can be comfortable with drinking apple brandy as well,” Gandee says.
