Are you ready for Fall yet? I guess I’ve been ready since last winter! However, the nature is not quite cooperating as we’re still having pretty warm temperature. The good news is, this Apple Harvest Cocktail will sure put you in the mood for Fall, or at least help makes me feel Fall has arrived!
This is a delightful and crisp cocktail that you can enjoy any time of the year. But the apple cider and cinnamon really helps set the tone for Autumn.
I’ve also added some bourbon, which harmonized wonderfully with apple and cinnamon. The maple syrup slightly sweetened the drink and gives a depth of flavor as well.
Of course, the dash of ground cinnamon on top isn’t just for garnish. It adds the earthy and warmth to this drink which complement the apple cider perfectly.
I top this cocktail with a little bit of ginger ale for the evanescent and the little carbonation really makes this drink crisp and refreshing.
Last but not least, this cocktail also serves as a small snack with the thin apple slice on top! I hope you really enjoy today’s video tutorial and recipe. Give this recipe a try on your next gathering, or simply because, it’s 5 o’clock! Cheers!
