These Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktails will warm you from the inside out and keep you toasty all season long – from tailgating to Thanksgiving!
We always pick up a few gallons of fresh apple cider when we visit the apple orchard every fall, and my kids devour it in quick fashion. But I always make sure to squirrel away enough for Pat and I to enjoy these smooth and seasonal Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktails after a long week.
Two kinds of liquor – bourbon and applejack brandy – are beautifully balanced by fresh apple cider, lemon juice and an herb-infused simple syrup to create a truly sippable cocktail. I usually make the simple syrup a few days in advance and keep it in the fridge until I’m ready to use it to make cocktail hour even easier.
Hosting a party? These Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktails can easily be multiplied as a batch cocktail for your guests (I highly recommend adding these to your Thanksgiving menu). Or tuck a few into a thermos the next time you tailgate for the big game. However you enjoy them, these Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktails have all the markings of a great drink – simple, seasonal and delicious.
