Ki Modern Japanese and Bar's Hirosaki’s Finest

Celebrate apple season with this boozy play on the caramel apple.

Apple season is here and Ki Modern Japanese + Bar in Toronto is celebrating with this apple-inspired cocktail. Ki uses Ontario-grown Granny Smith apples, which is best in the autumn weather. The bright flavour of apple stands up nicely to the sweetness of the housemade caramel sauce.

2 1/2 oz. apple cider
