Take one brother, a state-hopping chef with thirteen kitchen years of skill honing under his belt. Add a sister with a fine art degree and a passion for healthy sustainable food. Throw a bunch of organic apples at them.

The resulting boiled apple cider is an autumn treat, well-suited to the sort of hot seasonal cocktail which keeps frostbite and winter blues at bay. Once you sup, you will doubtless conjure up many applications of the brew. Thanksgiving, in particular, seems tailor-made for the concentrated apple taste – a distillation of America itself. It turns a bland stuffing into a holiday on the plate. Brussel sprouts and bacon – as if it wasn’t already festive enough – becomes extraordinary with the addition of a hot apple gravy. Or add it to piping hot water for homemade apple cider.

The Morris Kitchen siblings work with an orchard in upstate New York, sourcing the finest apples they can lay their hands on, and supporting the local growers in the process. Ingredients are melded in the frenzy of their Brooklyn kitchen, and distributed across the city’s food stalls. And, thankfully, now here too. The continuing adventures of the Morris Kitchen promises future delights in the same vein, including a preserved lemon syrup with hints of cardamom and pink peppercorn.

Use & Care

After opening, the bottle will sit happily in the fridge for 12 months. It can be whipped out for cocktails, hot apple cider or sparkling sodas. Also works for salad dressings, marinades or as a meat glaze, turning any roasting pan into a glistening feast.

Here's a recipe for a simple end-of-a-hard-day cocktail:

The Fall of Man
2 ounces vodka
1 tbsp Morris Kitchen Boiled Apple Cider Syrup
1 lemon wedge
A star anise to garnish

In a tall glass, stir vodka and apple cider syrup until blended. Add ice, top with seltzer and swirl to mix. Squeeze the lemon into the drink and drop it in. Float star anise on top as a garnish.

Hot Apple Toddy a single serving version of a pot of hot mulled cider
2 ounces amber rum (like Appleton's VX) or bourbon (like Buffalo Trace)
1 tbsp Morris Kitchen Boiled Apple Cider Syrup
1 clove
2 black peppercorns
1 cracked green cardamom pod
1 slice of fresh ginger
1 cinnamon stick for stirring
1 apple slice

Put the boiled apple cider syrup, ginger, clove, black peppercorns and cracked cardamom pod in bowl, a glass liquid measuring cup, or tea pot and add 5-6 ounces of boiling water. Let this steep for 5-7 minutes, then strain into a mug or wine glass. Add rum or bourbon, and garnish with an apple slice and a stick of cinnamon.
