It’s that time of year again, so gather with friends and take in all things fall! One of my favorite cocktails this season is Maple Bourbon Cider. Being a Kentuckiana gal, you already know I’m a big fan of bourbon. The maple flavor really makes this cocktail perfect for October, plus it’s an easy one to shake up.
Here’s what you need!
Ingredients (makes 3 cocktails):
6 oz. Bourbon (I used Woodford Reserve)
1/2 oz. pure maple syrup (or to taste)
1/4 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 cup spiced apple cider
1 apple, for garnish
Prepare garnish: using a spiralizer, slice apple into thin strings and set aside. Prepare glasses: add one large ice cube to each glass. In a cocktail shaker, add bourbon, syrup, lemon juice, and cider- shake vigorously. Strain into each glass and garnish with apple spirals.
