IRISH APPLE TART

IRISH APPLE TART

Irish whiskey + apple tart = a delicious, non girly cocktail.  This isn’t some apple-tini nonsense, this is a legit drink.  The spiciness of the Irish whiskey, the herbaceousness of the benedictine, and the flavors of the applejack are the base for this delicious cocktail.  Bottoms up!
