Drink Like a Wolff

Always ready to assist with shift mending or other tasks involving sharp, pointy things.

This past weekend, we went up to Trappe with the 17th Reg’t of Foot, though they were portraying Col. James Dunlap’s Partisan Regiment, and Drunk Tailor and I were portraying refugees trying to find a safe place somewhere between the British and the Whigs– not an easy task 240 years ago. How did we celebrate? By taking Route 1 part of the way back home, and stopping at Wolff’s Apple House in Media, PA for apples, strawberries, and, of course, cider. The reward for actually unpacking like sane humans and washing body linen was a cider-based concoction I’ll call Thirsty Like a Wolff.

1 ounce Jamaican/Plantation Rum (lighter is better)
1/2 ounce orgeat syrup (mine is homemade, recipe here)
3 ounces fresh, unpasteurized cider
2-3 dashes Hella Bitters Aromatic bitters
lime wedge

Combine all ingredients in shaker.
Add ice.
Shake until chilled; strain into an old fashioned glass.
Garnish with a lime wedge.
