Finding This Delicious Fall Cocktail Recipe

My niece has become quite the home chef. This recipe is one that she shared with me. The drink in the photo is hers too. She was done with her yard work and house cleaning. It was time for her to sit on her porch with her hubby and enjoy a fall drink while watching the sunset on the trees that are turning a beautiful color right now.

Her photo of this fall recipe turned out so much better than mine.

Just look at these fall trees. We love living out in the country. While the winters can sometimes be harsh, watching nature change with the seasons is amazing!

Twist on a Traditional Old Fashioned

For years, I made the old fashioned mix at a local bar. There was sugar, cherry juice, and bitters, just to name a few of the ingredients. If you’re searching for something new and delightful for a special evening at home or a gathering with friends, here is a fun twist on the traditional old fashioned.

Rather than the sugar, add maple syrup, which gives this an extra kick of sweetness. Make sure to use real maple syrup, not the pancake syrup. There is a difference in the sweetness. In place of the cherry juice, use apple cider. Real apple cider if you can get it. So easy and simple.

The perfect drink to enjoy with a few friends around a camp fire on a cook fall evening.

Make just enough for a small glass or make enough to fill a mug.

Variations to Apple Cider Drink Recipe

Adjust the amount of ingredients to your taste buds. I added 1/2 cup of the apple cider to my drink. Additionally, I increased the amount of maple syrup to 1 tablespoon too. I guess I must have a bit of a sweet tooth.

Use good Whiskey or Brandy. I used whiskey today; however, when having friends over, I have both on hand so everyone can enjoy this fall beverage just the way they like it.

Add a delicious orange slice as a garnish. I like to slice the orange and slice half way through the slice so I can rest the orange slice on the rim of the glass.

A cinnamon stick added can be used as a stir stick and help add a bit more subtle spice flavor.

Additional garnish ideas: maraschino cherries, pickled mushrooms or asparagus, pineapple chunk,

Thanksgiving Beverage Idea

This is a fun recipe to serve your family and friends on Thanksgiving.

If you prefer not to have your drink over ice, just use a cocktail shaker. When ice is put in the shaker this allows for a quicker cooling of the drink before serving.

Make this a Non-Alcoholic Drink

Leave out the alcohol and everyone can enjoy a delicious glass of this fun and delicious seasonal beverage. Just so yummy and perfect for fall or your Thanksgiving Holiday.
