This hauntingly delicious drink is perfect for fall. Combining sweet apple notes with cinnamon and a punch of bourbon, this cocktail is one to cozy up to. Make as a single drink, or as a punch for Halloween night, it’s even better than Bourbon Street.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 1/2 ounces bourbon
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup apple cider
2 teaspoons real maple syrup
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
(or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger)
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 ounces sparkling hard Honeycrisp apple cider
Cinnamon sticks, rosemary and apple slices for garnish
Cinnamon sugar for rim
Rim an Old Fashioned glass with cinnamon sugar and fill with ice. In a shaker, combine bourbon, apple cider, lemon juice, maple syrup, ginger and cinnamon. Shake to combine. Strain into glass and top with hard Honeycrisp apple cider. Garnish with cinnamon sticks, rosemary and apple slices.
