APPLE & GIN AUTUMN COCKTAIL
This drink is the perfect fall/football season bevy! What says Autumn better than some fresh apples and cider, great for any of your upcoming celebrations....Halloween, Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, etc. Start planning early and look no further than this delightful sipper.
2 ounces Gin (we used Faber..you know we like to keep it local)
2 ounces Apple Cider
1 ounce Lime Juice
2 ounces Honey Simple Syrup
Dash of Cinnamon
Optional Garnishes: 1 Apple - cut into matchsticks; Cinnamon stick
Make the honey simple syrup: Combine 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Stir until the honey dissolves. Transfer to a sealed mason jar and place in the refrigerator to cool.
Combine gin, apple cider, lime juice, honey simple syrup, and cinnamon to an ice filled shaker. Shake until completely chilled
To serve, Fill two glasses with ice and a few matchstick apples, pour cocktail over ice and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
We used gala apples which are sweet (to taste and scent) but you can use any type you prefer. We recommend fresh apple cider, but in a pinch, Simply Apple will work as well.
Feel free to double, or triple the recipe and use a pitcher (you will probably need it) instead of making cocktails all night long.
We found this recipe from No Spoon Necessary and it was definitely the hit of our party and a new Jasmine favorite!
