Vasco da Gama

At Alembic in San Francisco, Danny Louie created this drink, named for the explorer who made this combination of the disparate ingredients possible. By combining bourbon, Scotch and homemade garam masala-spiced apple syrup, you get a delicious play on fall flavors that'll warm you up from the inside.

Note: Use unsweetened apple cider from your local orchard or grocery store refrigerated section for this drink.
