Apple Cider Maple Fizz is a bourbon-based cocktail with a sweet maple and cider taste. This simple drink, with a hint of cinnamon and splash of ginger beer fizz, is Fall in a glass.
If your days are already turning crisp and you’d like to warm them up then try this apple cider hot toddy cocktail as well.
Apple Cider Maple Fizz
Traditional cocktails, such as a dirty martini or a basic margarita have always been my favorite, however, creative seasonal drinks come in a close second. As someone who isn’t a bourbon drinker, I find this Apple Cider Maple Fizz to be absolutely delicious. It truly tastes like fall in a glass.
This cocktail will compliment your weekend gatherings or seasonal parties. Toasting friends with a maple fizz and reflecting on all you have to be Thankful for will create sweet shared memories.
How Much Bourbon to Use
I myself am not much of a bourbon drinker, however, my husband enjoys the various kinds and unique flavors the aged beverage has to offer. I prefer a little less in my drink, whereas he prefers a tad more. The recipe below is slightly in the middle of a light splash of bourbon, and a good amount. It’s up to you how much or how little you’d like to add.
- 2 cups Apple Cider
- 1 cup Bourbon
- 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
- 4 tablespoons Ginger Beer
- Stir the apple cider, bourbon, and maple syrup together in a cocktail pitcher. Pour over ice in a high ball glass.
- Add a splash of ginger beer to each glass and garnish with cinnamon sticks and apple slices if desired.
