Stone Wall cocktail. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. With an origin that dates back to the fight for Fort Ticonderoga during the American Revolution, this cocktail is perfect for calming nerves and fostering good cheer. This updated recipe from Food and Wine includes ginger for added oomph. To make, muddle a one inch piece of fresh ginger in a shaker with one and a half teaspoons of simple syrup. Next add one and a half ounces of your favorite apple cider, such as Anxo Cider, and one and a half ounces of aged rum. Strain into an ice-filled glass and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wedge and fresh apple slice and feel the revolutionary spirit run right through you. I’m Anthony Dias Blue sponsored by CUISINART – fine small appliances and cookware.
