Changing Colors | makes two drinks
- 3 shots bourbon
- 2 shots apple cider syrup (see first line of recipe below)
- 1 shot fresh lemon juice
- 2 strips of orange zest (for the apple cider syrup &/or to garnish)
- 2 Cinnamon sticks
- 1 clove, optional
Add the bourbon, apple cider syrup, and lemon juice to the shaker.
Boil the apple cider, 1 cinnamon stick, and orange zest over high heat until reduced. (I boiled two cups down to 3/4 cup). Set aside to chill. Break cinnamon stick in half. Add the bourbon, apple cider syrup, additional cinnamon stick pieces, and lemon juice to the shaker. Add ice above the level of the liquid and shake. Pour over ice and garnish with your choice of a clove, cinnamon stick, or orange peel! Cheers!
