“Drink of the Week: Hot Apple Pie”

What: A drink to warm you up during the cold and flu season.

When: For chilly nights, or days.

How does it taste: Just like the name says, like hot apple pie, or hot apple cider with a bit of a kick.

Glass: A footed glass coffee mug.

History: Derek Khoudja, a bartender at Applebee’s in Parsippany, says the Hot Apple Pie is a promotional drink concocted at corporate headquarters. It is a descendent of drinks such as the hot toddy, made with hot tea, honey, and brandy–but contains no tea or honey.

The recipe: Hot Apple Pie:

1 1/2 ounces of Tuaca, an Italian liqueur with fruit essences

6 1/2 ounces of hot cider (at Applebee’s, Khoudja blends hot water with a cider mix, but he said the drink can be made with any heated cider).

Whipped Cream

Ground cinnamon

Khoudja mixes steaming hot water with a cider mix, pours in a jigger of Tuaca (he says that Galliano, another Italian liqueur, also would work). Then he blends the ingredients and tops with whipped cream and ground cinnamon tops for garnish. Recipe courtesy of Applebee’s.”
