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:
- Muddle two slices of apple in a shaker.
- Add a measure of bourbon, a measure of cranberry juice, a teaspoon of maple syrup and some ice.
- Shake well and strain into a martini glass.
- Add a twist of caramelised lemon oil and garnish with a slice of apple.
