Ingredients

  • 3 Granny Smith apples, halved, cored and sliced crosswise
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup honey 
  • 4 quarter-size slices fresh ginger
  • 3 whole cloves 
  • 1 cinnamon stick 
  • One 750-milliliter bottle pinot grigio
  • 1/4 cup calvados 
  • Sparkling water, for topping
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish 

Directions

Place the sliced apples in a bowl of water. Add the lemon juice to the water to keep the apples from browning.

Heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat. Pat dry the apple slices and grill, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

In a medium saucepan add 1 cup water, the sugar, honey, ginger, cloves and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer until the sugar fully dissolves and the syrup thickens, 15 minutes. Set aside to cool completely, then strain through a fine mesh sieve.

Add 1 cup of the spiced simple syrup to a large pitcher. Pour in the wine and calvados. Stir to combine. Add the grilled apples. Store in the refrigerator overnight.

To serve, fill a glass with ice and some apple wine. Add some slices of apple. Top with sparkling water and garnish with mint.
