Delightful cocktail creations are a must for the holiday season.  We at Unconditionally Her love creating something a little different for your seasonal taste buds and we think we have a winner for your turkey dinner appetizers.   Whether it is game day or your holiday gathering,  here’s a spin on apples and a little hard cider for your holiday get togethers!  Cheers!

1 Bottle Hard Apple Cider
1/2 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup
1/8c Cinnamon Whiskey (Fireball is our favorite)
1/8c Cold Spiced Apple Cider
Fresh Apple Slices
1 Cinnamon Stick

Glass Rim
1/8c Sugar
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/8c Spiced Apple Cider in a bowl


For the glass rim, mix your ground cinnamon and sugar together.  Dip your glass rim (we think in Mason Jars here in the south) in the spiced apple cider and then into the sugar/cinnamon mixture for a sugary/cinnamon rim.

Fill the glass halfway with ice and pour 3/4 of a glass of Hard Apple Cider.  Add your maple syrup, cinnamon whiskey and cold spiced cider to your liking.  Add your apple slices to the glass and top with a cinnamon stick.

Of course, you can add/subtract any of these ingredients to best suit your taste in beverages.

A delightful cocktail drink that is sure to go down smoothly.  Enjoy!
