Total time: 5 minutes, plus 5 days infusing time | Makes 750 milliliters of infused sherry
  • 5 apples, such as McIntosh, thinly sliced

Step 1Place the apples in a large glass container and cover with the sherry. (Keep the sherry bottle; you will strain the infusion back into it once ready.) Cover and place the jar in the refrigerator for 5 days.

Note: From Audrey Saunders of the Tar Pit. This can be served as an aperitif or used for other cocktails such as the Flame of Love (see recipe).
