This is one of my wife’s new favorite fall cocktails. As we enter firepit season, she likes to relax by the fire and sip on this warming cocktail while the kids try to squeeze in the last bit of outside play before the weather forces them inside. This Fall Bourbon Blitz only requires a few common ingredients and is super easy to make.
Our kids love fresh apple cider, so we almost always have some on hand this time of year.
Other than the cider all you need is some fresh squeezed lemon and some bourbon. We prefer this cocktail with a wheated bourbon, but feel free to use your favorite.
Simply combine 4 ounces of apple cider, with 2 ounces of bourbon, and juice of 1/2 a lemon, then add a dash of cinnamon. Mix well and pour into a highball with some ice. If you want to pretty it up a bit, garnish with an apple slice and a cinnamon stick.
