Housemade Apricot Brandy
Old Overholt rye whiskey

Shake & serve up with a lemon twist.

Brooke made some apricot infused brandy which is tasty, but (let's be honest) pretty ugly. Apricots tend to oxidize quickly if uncooked, so what came out was a muddy brown booze. Actually, it was appropriate since she just returned from Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans... mix in a little whiskey, and you got yerself a damn tasty beverage.
