I drink whiskey and bourbon all year-round but it’s even better in the fall and winter, don’t you think? When there’s a little chill in the air, there’s nothing better than warming up with a delicious whiskey cocktail. I’m also a sucker for apple cider. It’s almost like the minute fall appears, I’m immediately at the store buying apple cider. It’s one of those drinks that I can enjoy alone or warmed up with a little whiskey in it.
So not too long ago, I was trolling through Instagram and came across a young lady who I started to follow. She goes by “ByKaraElise” on Instagram and I love her account. She crafts really delicious cocktails and you know me, I can be lured to anyone’s blog or Instagram with pretty drinks.
I pinned this recipe from Kara’s site a few months back and almost forgot all about it. It wasn’t until I was actively searching for a fall-inspired cocktail that I was reminded of this deliciousness. And the icing on the cake? I had some extra apple cider in our fridge and I needed to put it to use.
The flavors of this whiskey cocktail just scream fall. Even if you’re not a big whiskey lover (those folks don’t exist though), you’ll love this drink. It isn’t overpowering but it’s not too sweet either. It’s perfect to whip up for a cocktail hour at home or you could even make a large batch of it and serve at your upcoming holiday party. Speaking of holiday parties, don’t forget my holiday cocktail workshop is happening soon. I had to throw in that shameless plug.
A whiskey cocktail perfect for fall
Have I convinced you yet to try this cocktail? Hopefully I have but just in case here’s my last plea. If you decide to make this for a party, set out some cloves, cinnamon and apple slices then let your guests garnish their drinks. It’s interactive and it will make your drinks pretty.
