  • 2 oz Calvados
  • 1/4 oz Mead
  • 3/4 oz Apple juice
  • 1/4 oz Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon-infused honey*
  • Garnish: 2 dried apple slices
  • Garnish: Cinnamon stick


  1. Bring all of the ingredients to a boil while stirring occasionally.

  2. Strain into an Irish Coffee mug, and garnish with 2 dried apple slices and a cinnamon stick.

  3. *Cinnamon-infused honey: Add 3 to 5 cinnamon sticks to a small jar (4 oz or so), and fill with honey of choice. Let sit 4 to 6 days, tasting on occasion, and remove the cinnamon sticks once the cinnamon flavor is satisfactory (i.e. present without being overwhelmingly strong).
