1 1/2 oz. brandy
3/4 oz. apple juice
1/2 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice
1/4 oz. maple syrup
If you were a cocktail, you’d be an Apple Blossom. Awfully sweet. Plenty strong. Quite fresh. With just the right kick.
Lucky for you, a new Noe Valley boutique has just the clothing for your multifaceted sensibilities. Apple Blossom knows that (like its namesake cocktail) you aren’t the same girl every day.
Owner and designer Jin Kwon chooses merchandise to complement a girl’s ever-shifting moods. Some days, your quiet, feminine side pines for a delicately embroidered cardigan in peachy pink. On other days, your bolder, fiercer side demands slimming pinstripe trousers or a fitted, calf-length houndstooth coat in soft wool. The carefully selected inventory also includes plenty of other delicious items from Mac & Jac, Beth Bowley, How & Wen, Drifter, and Amy Tangerine. And be on the lookout for Jin’s own one-of-a-kind designs in early 2005.
Hey, we’ll drink to that.
Apple Blossom, 1303 Castro Street, at 24th Street, suite C (415-401-0602).
