The Crowned Apple cocktail at Andrea’s is a fresh pick this season.
Who doesn’t love a gala? Or an apple for that matter? Offered exclusively in Asian-inspired restaurant Andrea’s at Encore, the Crowned Apple cocktail combines Crown Royal’s Regal Apple whiskey— made with Regal Gala apples—and Cardamaro amaro, a Moscato wine-based amaro that’s infused with cardoon (a relative of the artichoke) and aged in oak. It all makes for an appley, slightly nutty, smooth drink that, topped with a lightly frothy crown, is fit for royalty.
