It is officially Fall which has me thinking it’s time to bring on all the pumpkin flavored everything and bourbon cocktails! I can’t add in “layering, scarves, boots, etc.” yet because it’s still in the
80 90’s here and although we never never treat bourbon cocktails as a seasonal thing, this one definitely packs in that It’s Autumn punch! So who cares that it’s still summer temps! If you want a bourbon cocktail that tastes like fall (or you’re a fan of Hard Apple Ciders) this one is for you… and for all those who DM’d me when I posted this instagram of us trying it out the other night! That’s the fun part about blogging these recipes- there’s always a taste test and then a real deal. This one is the real deal and then some!
The ‘Rye’pe Apple | Makes One Cocktail
- 1 shot rye whiskey (or you can use bourbon)
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- 1 pinch cloves
- 3 dashes aromatic bitters
- Hard Apple Cider
Add the whiskey, cinnamon, cloves and bitters to a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour over a collins or highball glass with ice cubes (I love this ice tray for cocktails) and top with your favorite hard apple cider. If you’re feeling fancy, garnish with a strip of orange zest or a cinnamon stick- Cheers!
