Rudolph’s Apple Sling

Sam Gauthier, Boilermaker | New York

Created for Boilermaker’s Christmas pop-up, Sam Gauthier’s apple sling combines apple brandy and maple syrup with a dose of St. George’s pine-y Terroir gin.

“The idea for this drink came through trying to create the sensory experience of sitting around the Christmas tree eating baked apple pie,” he explains. “You smell the pine and you taste apples, dark sweetness and warming spices.”
