Mighty Thirst Halloween: Persimmon Bob

I’m posting Halloween-themed cocktails this week, because someone needs to numb us for the zombie apocalypse.

Bobbing for apples seems so time consuming when you realize the juice comes bottled now. Thanks, science.

Persimmon Bob

Blend these to make persimmon puree:
- 2 Fuyu persimmons
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 shots water

And then mix these to make your cocktail:
- 1 shot persimmon puree
- a squeeze of lemon
- a shot of Bulliet bourbon
- 2 shots apple juice
- a pinch of nutmeg

Here’s to pulling the record out of its sleeve, sneaking a smoke on the stoop, and jumping on the bed — especially when the bed is a futon.
