With apple cider, rum and Fireball Whiskey, this spiked apple cider cocktail is the perfect drink during the fall season.
When you think of fall fruit, you think of apples. A few years ago Lauren and I got married in the fall. As has become popular with weddings these days, we wanted to have a signature drink. I remember the summer leading up to the wedding, we were trying different drinks almost every weekend. The one thing we knew is we wanted to have apple involved as we had a fall wedding.
After enjoying quite a few different iterations, we settled on a simple yet tasty recipe I found on Food Network that only had three ingredients, four if you wanted some fresh apple in it – an apple cider cocktail. To play off the wedding, we named it Applely Ever After.
Obviously since we picked this drink we thought they were good, but didn’t have any idea how popular they’d be at the wedding. I had multiple people afterward ask for the recipe. Everyone was surprised how easy it was!
These apple cider cocktails can be dangerous as the fireball whiskey complements the apple cider perfectly! Make no mistake, there is a decent amount of alcohol in them so don’t go overboard, unless you want to of course. I hope you enjoy!
