The easiest Trick-or-Treat apple cider cocktail

by Jessie K on October 31, 2012

Calling all parents on Trick or Treat duty!

Here’s a great cocktail to sip while handing out candy to the kids or to sip from a thermos while strolling with other parents as the little ones run door-to-door. Naturally, it calls for fresh apple cider because I happen to have that coming out of my ears.

To make, combine 3/4 fresh apple cider, 1/3 cup bourbon and a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice in a shaker loaded with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into two glasses (serves two). Or quadruple the recipe and strain into a thermos loaded with ice.

Have fun tonight, scary people.

If you like that drink you should try the whiskey smash at the Woodberry Kitchen. Not far from Jake’s parents. I have spent a-little time adapting it.

We got some peach cider from Saunder’s Orchard and I bet it would be a tasty substitute for the apple!
