Bourbon and Apple Cider Cocktails

Photos and Recipe Creative Culinary

Warm up this weekend with Bourbon fall cocktails! We love this recipe from Creative Culinary – and needing fresh apples and cider is a great excuse to make a trip to the orchard. We liked the extra spice and bite that ginger beer adds to the mix, and it blends perfectly with whatever Bourbon you like. One variation we tried adds sorghum or maple syrup for a touch of sweetness! Get the full recipe below.

2 ounces Apple Cider, chilled
1 ounce Bourbon
2 ounces Ginger Ale or Ginger Beer, chilled
Apple slices for garnish

1. Combine the cider and bourbon in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until very cold (if serving a crowd, combine these two ingredients in a pitcher and refrigerate for at least an hour.
2. Strain mixture into an ice filled glass and top with the chilled ginger ale. Stir gently.
3. Garnish with an apple slice and serve.
