“All aboard to enjoy this great winter cocktail. It’s quick, crowd pleasing, and brimming with two beloved winter flavors—apple pie and apple cider! This festive drink is just as tasty as it is beautiful. Bonus for merry makers who may not imbibe: This drink is equally as good as a mocktail, and very quick to make with just a few ingredients, so it’s great for parties.” – Belinda Kelly, mixologist, Simple Goodness Sisters
1½ ounces bourbon
1 ounce fresh apple cider
¾ ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
¼ ounce Simple Goodness Sisters Apple Pie syrup
1 dash aromatic bitters
Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice, shake for 10 seconds, then pour contents into a rocks glass. Finely grate whole nutmeg over the top of the drink and rest an apple slice over the rim of the glass. Enjoy!
