  • 2 ounces calvados
  • 1/4 ounce mead
  • 3/4 ounces apple juice
  • 1/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon-infused honey*
  • Garnish: 2 dried apple slices
  • Garnish: cinnamon stick


  1. Add all ingredients into a small saucepot and heat just until near simmering, stirring occasionally.

  2. Strain into an Irish Coffee mug.

  3. Garnish with 2 dried apple slices and a cinnamon stick.

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