To quote the venerable Martin Lawrence: Daaaamn, Gina! He must have been talking about D.C. mixologist Gina Chersevani.
Apples and Ale
12 apples (Pink Ladies preferred)
3 cinnamon sticks
7 cardamom pods
2 star anise
3 qts. Dales Pale Ale
3 c. raw honey
15-16 oz. bourbon whiskey
15-16 oz. Domaine de Canton
1. Peel and quarter the apples.
2. Place all the spices in some cheesecloth; tie up the cloth. (A tea infuser works just as well.)
3. In a pot, pour the beer, then add the spice ball, honey, and apples. Simmer for about twenty minutes, until just before it boils. (Low and slow!) Remove the ale mixture from the heat.
4. To serve, pour 1/2 oz. whiskey and 1/2 oz. Domaine de Canton into a glass mug and fill with the ale mixture.
