An Apple A Day – an Apple, Ginger, Cucumber and Rye Cocktail

This post is part of partnership with Barrow’s Intense. Learn more about their intense ginger liqueur here!

I tend to make a lot of gin-based cocktails because gin + botanicals are a natural fit, but I’ve been working on expanding my booze horizons a bit lately. I’m loving Whistle Pig rye and Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur, so I’ve paired them in this delicious, fresh, dare I say ‘healthy’ cocktail. I’ve made this several times over the past few days, and the fresh flavor of the juice makes it well worth the extra effort!


1.5 oz Whistle Pig Rye
1 oz Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur
1/2 an apple
1/2 a lemon
2” of cucumber

Slice the apple and cucumber and muddle them with the lemon juice in a shaker. Strain. Should yield 1.5-2 oz. Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with the other apple half and thyme.
