Though the calendar is telling us it's all "back to school" this and "don't wear white" that, the weather is telling a different story. This cocktail is the perfect transitional drink: It evokes the spirit of the passing summer past while adding a warm spice to ease us into the approaching cool weather.

Curried Apple Mojito

Recipe from the Tasting Table Test Kitchen

Yield: 1 cocktail

Prep Time: 5 minutes, plus 30 minutes macerating time

Cook Time: N/A

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

½ cup green apples, diced

¼ teaspoon curry powder

¾ ounce Sugar in the Raw

¾ ounce fresh lime juice

2 ounces rum

8 mint leaves

Ice

2 ounces sparkling water

Directions

1. In a cocktail shaker, add the apples, curry powder, sugar and lime juice. Muddle well, until the texture resembles a chunky applesauce. Add the rum and set the shaker aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

2. Strain the liquid from the shaker into a separate container and discard the remaining pulp. Give the shaker a rinse, then add the mint and muddle. Add the strained apple-curry liquid to the mint, then fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Pour the liquid into a tall glass, fill to the top with more ice and top with the sparkling water. Insert a straw and serve.
