Cider-Bourbon Cocktail

Recipe photo courtesy of Bryan Gardner

Fresh ginger and lemon juice bring a shot of brightness to this simple, seasonal cocktail. It's just the thing for celebrating fall.

Total Time Prep Servings




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.

Cook's Notes

Try making "ice cubes" from cider -- they won't water down your drink as they melt.

    hay guys, Ive been using my Ice Ball Maker for for nearly 12 months now. I bought my first from the Japan Trend Shop but had to get a refund as it didn't work properly. The best site and machine I've found by far is an Irish company called Drinksology for more information please visit it honestly is the home of the Ice ball maker and would definitely recommend to anyone who is thinking about purchasing one.

    Very good. It took a moment to adjust to the taste since I usually drink sweeter cocktails. But the mixture of apple cider, lemon juice, ginger (love it) and delicious honey crisp apples is a pleasure. Makes watching the baseball game that much more exciting. Thanks
