Apple Sauced

Apple Sauced cocktail with bourbon, maple syrup, lemon juice, hard cider, and cinnamon

Whiskey Sours are our fall and winter go-to, but after a season of them it’s nice to spice things up sometimes. When that urge hits, we turn to the Apple Sauced, from travel blog Whiskey Tango Globetrot.

It’s essentially a Maple Leaf (another great riff on the Whiskey Sour), lengthened with hard cider and topped with cinnamon. We usually leave a pinch of spice as an optional garnish in drinks like this, but in the Apple Sauced it’s an essential component. With it, the drinks tastes just like its namesake.

The original recipe calls for hard cider. It’s also tasty with non-alcoholic cider, albeit a bit sweeter.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake the whiskey, lemon juice, and maple syrup with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and top with the cider. Sprinkle with cinnamon and garnish with a cinnamon stick or an apple fan (or both!)
