Scoby-Ville Slow Drinker

This fall-friendly sipper is a tweak on the Jersey cocktail, which has been around since the 1860s. In part, its name honors Scobeyville, NJ, home to Laird’s Applejack and America’s oldest distillery. It also gives props to the SCOBY a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast that give rise to fermented beverages like ginger beer and kombucha.
