Eve’s Answer Cocktail Recipe

We think this tequila and raisin-flavored cocktail from Crafthouse by Fortessa is just as alluring as Eve’s apple.


  • Yield:


  • 1 ½ oz Tequila
  • ½ oz Spiced Raisin Syrup*
  • 1 oz Rich Apple Cider
  • ¾ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Mezcal Float


  1. Combine Tequila, raisin syrup, cider and lemon juice in mixing glass.
  2. Add ice, shake well and strain into coupe glass.
  3. Float Mezcal over top of cocktail.
  4. Dust with cinnamon and garnish with remaining stick. (note: Ceylon cinnamon is preferable; however, cassia (common cinnamon) is just fine in a pinch)


*Raisin Syrup: Heat 24oz white grape juice until warm. Combine with 24oz sugar and stir until dissolved. Steep 5 cinnamon sticks, 6 cloves, 3 star anise and a scrape of nutmeg for 20 minutes in a covered pot. Let cool, strain and refrigerate for use.
