Hof’s Hut Autumn Daydream Cocktail

So, I had one of the best cocktails that I’ve ever had at the most unlikely of places, Hof’s Hut.  Yes, Hof’s Hut.   The local Hof’s Hut had advertised a cocktail called the Autumn Daydream in it’s fall menu.  It is a mixture of Maker’s Mark, lemon juice, apple juice and cinnamon syrup.  I had the opportunity to have a couple of them and had to reproduce the blessed elixir.  Here’s what I came up with.

First, you’re going to have to make or procure cinnamon simple syrup. I made my own with the linked recipe.  It is great in numerous recipes and is really delicious in this cocktail.  Here is the complete recipe.

  • 2 oz Maker’s Mark
  • 2 oz Lemon Juice
  • 2 oz Apple Juice
  • 1 oz Cinnamon Syrup

Shake the cocktail and enjoy over ice.

My buddy Ty Smith asked, “Who the f goes to Hof’s Hut and gets a cocktail?”.  He’s also the guy that said that this is one of the best cocktails that I’ve come up with. While not a Russ Turley original, my version is every bit as delicious as the original.
