Eat & Drink Your Apples with a Spicy Apple Old-Fashioned!

It’s fall, and my thoughts turn to all things apple. How about making a Spicy Apple Old-Fashioned!

As of August 2018, Monash University reported that 20 grams of Pink Lady apple are considered low FODMAP.

20 grams doesn’t seem like a lot, but as an ingredient in a cocktail, those 20 grams make their presence known!!!

To “see” what 20 grams looks like, check out our article, Are Apples Low FODMAP?.

For this recipe I peeled the Pink Lady apple, roughly chopped it, and then muddled the whiskey into it.

I leave the apple in the bottom of the glass. By the time you drink the cocktail, the apple is infused with the other ingredients and is super delicious!

So you kind of get an apple drink and an apple snack at the same time!

  • 20 grams of Pink Lady apple peeled and chopped
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons/30 ml) whiskey
  • ½ ounce (1 tablespoon/15 ml ) Simple Syrup
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons/30 ml) lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper you can switch this to cinnamon if you want something a little more traditional
  • Ice


  1. Place your apple pieces and whiskey in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and muddle the apples until they are fairly well crushed up.

  2. Add Simple Syrup, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and six ice cubes.

  3. Shake until the ice breaks into tiny pieces. It should look almost like crushed ice from an icemaker. 

  4. Pour without straining into a highball glass and serve.
