The Lemur Loosener

The Lemur is a Madagascan primate that enjoys a diet of apples, berries and, I’m told, the occasional celebratory bourbon.  Lemurs are very sociable, and a group of lemurs (is that really the best collective noun lemur-ologists can come up with?) can hold quite the birthday party.

I’ve never actually stopped to ask one, but I imagine that, when pressed, a lemur would enjoy the following concoction which I’ve decided to name the Lemur Loosener:

  1. Muddle two slices of apple in a shaker.
  2. Add a measure of bourbon, a measure of cranberry juice, a teaspoon of maple syrup and some ice.
  3. Shake well and strain into a martini glass.
  4. Add a twist of caramelised lemon oil and garnish with a slice of apple.
If you want more of an apple kick, add a measure of apple schnapps and, if you’re feeling especially experimental, frost the glass in cinnamon and sugar for some extra apple pie notes.

    According to the bastion of all knowledge that is Wikipedia the collective noun can be plot, conspiracy or congress. The female is also a princess,this pleases me!
