As you’ve probably noticed when I shared these cute fall entertaining staples, I love entertaining during the fall and holidays! One party must have is a good cocktail of course! Which is why I’m so excited to share this delicious bourbon spiced cider cocktail recipe. It’s so easy to make and really delicious. It’s a perfect party cocktail because it doesn’t taste super strongly of bourbon, so it’s sure to please all of your guests whether they are big fans of bourbon or not!
Bourbon Spiced Cider Cocktail Recipe
Fall and winter cocktails are my favorite! Remember this post I did? I love bourbon cocktails and with apple cider this one feels so appropriate for fall! I wanted to put together a drink with 5 ingredients or less because I know how frustrating it can be to get a drink recipe that requires so many different items that you probably don’t have on hand. Random syrups, liquors you’ll only use once, an odd fruit. Trust me, it’s happened! Luckily all of these drink ingredients might already be in your pantry! I hope you love this cocktail as much as we do! I’m definitely thinking it will be perfect for a fall party – Halloween perhaps? You could even triple it and put in a pitcher and it would be all ready to go!
BTW, tortoise shell seems to be having a moment right now, so I couldn’t resist using my favorite tortoise shell glasses. They’re a few years old, but I found a very similar set on Amazon! I think they are just so pretty for fall. I love their rich, dark color. I am so on board with this trend, I love tortoise shell jewelry, sunglasses, and shoes so much!
- 3/4 cup apple cider
- 1/3 cup bourbon
- 2 tbl fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- optional 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 thin slices from apple and cinnamon sticks for garnish
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake to combine. Pour into two glasses with ice. Top with garnish.
You can make it stronger by adding more alcohol. Perfect for me but Matthew wanted it a little stronger for him. I think this would be a great cocktail to make for a party too! It goes down easy though so watch out!
