Similarly the daiquiri, with its trilogy of rum, lime and sugar, can be one of the most satiating and enticing drinks imaginable, when crafted by the right hand.

Fall may easily conjure thoughts of warm apple pie, but not as often the fruit-derived bounty found in spirits like French cognac and applejack — American apple brandy. Bringing those elements together, as well as notes of spice and smoke, Lower East Side cocktail haven Sel Rrose's Timothy Kiefer creates a riff on the Gold Rush.
