The ABC -- Autumn Bourbon Cidre, Or The Boozy Apple
Earlier in the day I was grocery shopping and stopped by the juice counter at the local grocery store. I really dig good apple cider and picked up a quart. Little did I know this was going to be the inspiration of our cocktail hour. So as the time came to create a perfect drink for the evening, and wanting to do something new and different, I thought to my self.... HMMMMMM what if i used that apple cider in some way? With... vodka...? No.... Tequila...? No.... Bourbon...? YES! What a great coooombination.
I filled our glasses with ice, added 2 oz. of bourbon and filled the glass with cider. As this cider was a little tart, I added a 1/2 oz. of maraschino cherry juice, gave a quick stir and... presto...! Our happy hour cocktail.... I give you the ABC -- Autumn Bourbon Cidre, Or The Boozy Apple!
