We asked Jeffrey Morgenthaler, bar manager at Clyde Common and author of the Bar Book: Elements of Cocktail Technique, to share one of his favorite recipes for the perfect fall libation. “It’s like fall in a glass, bright apple and cinnamon flavors, with some fresh earth and thanksgiving spices,” says Morgenthaler.
The word “cabin” is typically defined as a small house of simple construction conjuring up images of a rustic log structure deep in the snow or an isolated lakeside fishing cottage.
