Late Summer Cocktails


Now that summer is coming to an end, and the kids are back in school, it’s time to toast with an apple for the teachers and an apple-flavored drink for yourself! Here are two fun apple-inspired cocktails that give you that cozy late summer/early fall feeling.

Apple Cider Mojito

2 oz White rum (for more of a summery flavor) or spiced rum (for more of an autumnal flavor) 

4 oz Apple cider

½ oz Simple syrup

Splash of club soda 

Fresh mint leaves

Fresh lime wedges


Muddle the mint and lime wedges in the bottom of a tall glass. Pour simple syrup into the glass. Fill with ice and add white rum, apple cider and stir it all together, then top it off with a splash of club soda for some bubbles.
