Fall is here, and along with it comes all the apple cider-y goodness. Apple cider is delicious on its own, but when you're looking to spice it up a notch, this bourbon apple cider is fall in a glass. Get cozy by the fireplace and enjoy this festive fall cocktail.


  • 4 oz apple cider (local if you're near a cider mill. We used Louisburg Cider Mill Apple Cider)
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 2 T cinnamon
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 orange
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs


  1. Combine cinnamon and sugar on a plate.
  2. Slice the orange into wedges. Run a wedge around the edge of your cocktail glass. Coat the rim in the cinnamon/sugar and fill with ice.
  3. Add bourbon, and top with apple cider.
  4. Garnish with an orange slice and fresh rosemary sprig.
