I'm having a bit of an identity crisis right now...Part of me wants fall to get here already, while the other part of me doesn't really want to let go of summer. Luckily, fall is almost here, but I still have a few weeks left to revel in the magic of summertime. Now even though I'm still rockin' summer outfits and enjoying the balmy weather, that doesn't mean I'm not already indulging in fall inspired recipes. I'm bonkers for anything apple related...especially apple flavored cocktails!

The Perfect Drink for Fall Nights

Did you know that you can use apple cider to make a slew of delicious apple flavored drinks? You can pair it with everything from sparkling wine to rum and even bourbon...which brings me to today's featured cocktail. I'm not much of a bourbon drinker myself, but my hubs enjoys a nip every now and again and it's a great thing to have on hand for fall get togethers. So, I do usually have a bottle in my liquor cabinet.

Now I may not be a bourbon connoisseur, but I've yet to meet a glass of apple cider that I didn't like. Haha! And on that note...I thought the two might be mighty tasty together. Guess what? I wasn't wrong! I do believe I just found a bourbon drink I can get behind! Score.


Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktail Directions

  • Simply combine 4-6 oz. of apple cider with a shot of bourbon.
  • Shake with ice, strain and enjoy! 
  • A dash of cinnamon and an apple garnish make for great finishing touches.
