A crisp and festive drink for the season

Published 2:28 pm Friday, November 17, 2017

With fall here and the temperature dropping, apple recipes are aplenty. On those cool fall days, this apple cider cocktail will keep you warm while keeping with the spirit of the season. The bourbon will have you feeling warm and toasty. The apple cider (for which there are plenty of Minnesota-made options made available locally) makes the drink crisp and festive, while the maple syrup smooths out the combination of cider and bourbon. A bit of lemon juice gives the cocktail a nice zing while bringing out the flavors of the other ingredients. The recipe can easily be duplicated, so you can share around a bonfire or with friends on football Sundays. Cheers!
