Fresh ginger and lemon juice bring a shot of brightness to this simple, seasonal cider-bourbon cocktail. It's just the thing for celebrating fall.
Try making "ice cubes" from cider -- they won't water down your drink as they melt.
You can also make this a big-batch cocktail: In a pitcher, combine 3 cups apple cider, 1 cup bourbon, 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 8 thin slices fresh ginger, and 8 to 12 thin slices from a small apple. Stir well and chill. Serve over ice.
