Last weekend we took a drive upstate and stopped at an apple orchard to pick up fresh pressed apple cider and – obviously – apple cider donuts. As soon as we got home I knew I wanted to find a fall cocktail recipe that could incorporate the cider. This seasonal take on traditional Moscow mules was just the thing. Sweet from the cider, but with a bit of zing from the lime and ginger beer and dash of spice from the cinnamon – these tasted like fall in a mug. Oh – and couldn't be easier to make. If you're looking for something to make at this weekend's parties this one could be made in bigger batches is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
"Serve it up with a nice decorative rimmed glass by dipping it into some Marshmallow Cream or Frosting and rolling it in some colorful sprinkles! And YES…you can eat the drunken Candy Corn..haha! - Oh Bite It
"It’s a blend of bourbon, homemade spicy serrano pepper simple syrup, bitters, an orange twist and a coffee rock ice cube, which is and extra large ice cube made entirely of drip coffee. The best part – it’s strong!" - A Happy Food Dance
"The base of the drink is apple cider that spends some time in a kinky hot bubble bath with cinnamon, orange peel, cloves, and vanilla. Pour a little of that into a cute crystal glass and add an equal part aged rum, followed by a good whisking to fully blend it all." - Probably This
