I was looking for the perfect autumn cocktail. I wanted the flavors of apple and spice, but nothing too sweet. I love Warm Apple Cider with Carmel Vodka, but that just wasn’t what I was in the mood for. After looking at several recipes that didn’t sound quite right, I took matters into my own hands and made my own cocktail.
1 cup cider – warmed with 3-4 allspices and 1 cinnamon stick
4 1/2 – 6 oz (3-4 shots) good whiskey
1/2- 1 1/2 oz simple syrup
Cinnamon sugar, apple slice, cinnamon sticks for garnish
Heat the cider with the spices, strain. Add whiskey and simple syrup.
Rim glass with cider, dip in cinnamon sugar. Pour warm drink into 2 glasses, garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks. Grab a cozy sweater, a good book and enjoy!!!
