If you want to have your favorite fall dessert in liquid form, you need one key ingredient: Applejack.
This boozy concoction should be available at your local liquor store – it’s made from apples and was popular during the colonial period in America. To pie-ify your drink, just mix applejack with a little bit of sugar, some spice and fresh apple cider. Check out the full recipe for this fall favorite below.
Step 1: Cut two apple slices into small pieces.
Step 2: Put apple pieces into a cocktail shaker. Add one teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of cinnamon, then muddle ingredients together using a wooden spoon.
Step 3: Measure two ounces of applejack liqueur and pour into cocktail shaker.
Step 4: Measure two ounces of fresh apple cider and pour it into the cocktail shaker.
Step 5: Add ice to cocktail shaker. Cap with pint glass and shake vigorously. The shaking action not only stirs the drink, it has a muddling effect on the fruit.
Step 6: Prepare a fresh glass with ice and garnish with an apple slice. Strain mix into the glass. For more fruit in your cocktail, pour mixture from the shaker using a wooden spoon to hold back the ice cubes. To strain fruit out, use a proper cocktail strainer.
Garnish with an apple slice and you’ve got yourself a sweet apple pie cocktail, perfect for sipping on a fine fall day!
