This is your ’tweener cocktail. Goodbye summer, hello autumn. The Cherry Apple Crisp ($10) combines Leopold Bros. New York Apple Whiskey with Maurin Quina (for cherriness), Alexandro Palo Cortado Sherry (for nuttiness) and Fentimans ginger beer (for richness and bite), and it’s garnished with a Luxardo Maraschino cherry (for beauty). You’ll get summer cherries, autumn apples, a bit of toasty oak and vanilla, and a nutty finish. Or is it a nutty beginning to a new season? Try one at Lush Wine & Spirits, 1412 W. Chicago.
