Tender Knob

H Joseph Ehrmann created the Tender Knob, and it evokes Fall. Ehrmann is the owner of Elixir, one of the oldest continually operating taverns in San Francisco. The Apple and Bourbon work together with the cinnamon to give a slightly sweet cocktail with a total depth of flavour. Try it out and let us know what you think.
