Like so many of us who find ourselves with a ridiculous number of apples after an apple picking trip, I might be posting a ridiculous number of apple recipes this month! This recipe came about after I impulsively purchased a bottle of gluten free pumpkin spice vodka and needed to find some fall inspired drink recipes. I also happened to have some fresh apple cider on hand(apple picking trip) and this recipe blends these flavors into a perfect cocktail for a Halloween party or Thanksgiving get together. Spicy and yummy! Apple pie in a glass!
Harvest Apple Cider Cocktail:
- 1 1/4 cup apple cider
- 1 cup gluten free pumpkin spice vodka(I used Spud)
- Splash lemon juice
- 1 TBSP maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup ginger ale
- Apple slices and cinnamon for garnish
- Place all ingredients in a large cocktail shaker and shake well.
- Serve with ice and apple slices. Sprinkle with cinnamon for garnish(optional)
