    • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 4 tablespoons butter, chilled and cubed

    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      • 3.75 liters filtered water

      For the green apple syrup: Cut the apples away from the core leaving the skin on. Place in a large pot with the sugar and 1 cup water. Cook on high heat for 25 minutes. Strain the apples and place the syrup in the fridge to cool overnight. Save 2 tablespoons of the syrup to rim the glass.

      For the piecrust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Put the flour and butter into a bowl and cut with a fork until pea-size balls of butter have formed. Mix in the sugar and cinnamon, then 2 tablespoons water until the mixture just comes together. Place on a sheet tray and bake for 20 minutes. When the piecrust is cooled, place it in a coffee grinder to make a fine powder.

      For the cooler: Mix the filtered water and 1 liter green apple syrup in a large jug and place in the fridge.

      To assemble: Take a glass and dip into the reserved green apple syrup. Roll the rim of the glass in pie crumbs. Fill the glass with ice and add the cooler.
