Cheers to Fall

Cheers to Fall

 It’s officially that time of year to break out the boots, cozy sweaters and our favorite fall flavors. Pumpkin spice, apple, cinnamon, maple, we could go on and on. In addition to pies, doughnuts or signature lattés, you can also enjoy seasonal flavors in refreshing cocktails. There’s no better way to celebrate harvest season than with a Hard Apple Cider Cocktail.

The combination of rye, fresh apple cider, lemon juice and maple make for a sweet, spicy, tangy and bold beverage that will keep you coming back for more. It’s basically fall in a glass.

If you’re looking for the perfect drink to serve at your Halloween party, Thanksgiving dinner or any festive fall gathering, this is it. Plus, it is simple to make and doesn’t require too many ingredients.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 oz. rye
  • 2 oz. fresh apple cider
  • 1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz. real maple syrup
