When it comes to cocktails, simplicity is key—especially when it's the end of a long workweek. And because today just so happens to be World Cocktail Day, we tapped third-generation barman Giuseppe González, owner of Suffolk Arms, an English pub-inspired mixology bar on New York City's Lower East Side, for a refreshing spring beverage that can be easily fixed at home, sans fancy accoutrements (though you will need a juicer). This drink, dubbed the "Horse Apple," literally only requires a green apple and a spirit of your choosing. "I have yet to taste a liquor that doesn't work with this drink," González tells InStyle. Read on for the two-ingredient recipe you never knew you needed.
