Brandy • Sweet
Boozy Apple Float

This booze-infused float sets itself apart by swapping out traditional vanilla ice cream for sweet-tart apple sorbet. Continuing with the autumnal fruit theme, Sarah Osborn of Sardella in St. Louis tops the sorbet with a shot of apple brandy and two shots of ultra-floral elderflower liqueur, which adds brightness, contrast and depth.
