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.
A sweet and spicy flavorful mix of mint
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.
A twist on the traditional mule with refreshing fall flavors
2 oz Apple vodka
4 oz Ginger beer
½ oz lime juice
Fresh apple slices
Fill a copper mug with ice and combine all ingredients. Gently stir and garnish with an apple slice.
