Tanyard Cocktail - The official cocktail of the 2020 Waterford Fair

The Waterford Fair is a tradition in Loudoun County, Virginia, that goes back 75 years! Every year, local producers gather to sell their wares: quilts, leather goods, woolen goods, cheese, beer, wine, clothing... you get the idea. Thousands of customers descend upon the gentle rolling landscape of Waterford to browse the fair and kick off autumn. 2020 has been a tough year, and this year, the fair will do its first virtual event.

This cocktail was created by the Waterford Fair as their official cocktail, using both our apple brandy and some of Doug Fabbioli's hard apple cider. This little beverage is very delicious, and packs a punch!

The Fair runs Oct 2-4.  Get your tickets to the Waterford Fair - HERE:  waterfordfairva.org

One 1" piece of fresh ginger, peeled
1½ tsp simple syrup (or agave syrup)
1½ oz Catoctin Creek Apple Brandy
1½ oz Fabbioli Cellars Attitude Adjuster (hard apple cider)
1½ oz chilled ginger beer
1 lime wedge
1 apple slice

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the sliced ginger with the simple syrup. Add the brandy and ice. Shake well and strain into an ince-filled glass and top with equal parts ginger beer and hard cider. Garnish with the lime wedge and apple slice.
