The ABC -- Autumn Bourbon Cidre, Or The Boozy Apple

And now, without further ado, our first ever guest blogger -- THE HUSBAND!!

The Husband's original creation:
The ABC -- Autumn Bourbon Cidre, Or The Boozy Apple
So... the other night, The (Other) Husband asked me to create a cocktail for our Friday night happy hour drink.  As readers know, we are avid Manhattan fans, so I wanted to do something a little different this night.  

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!

(Dilettante: Ain't he great?!  I love how different his voice is.  Thanks for playing, Schnooks! ;-)

  2. Love this chilled idea ~ I do it hot quite often but never thought of it chilled ~ and I have a gallon fresh from the orchard so.....CHEERS! I'd certainly like to hear more from you, my sweet Brother from another.
