Mulled for hours with spices and served hot in your favorite mug or crisp and cold from the orchard market, apple cider is (at least in my mind) the quintessential fall beverage. As soon as the leaves turn and the weather gets cold, I start toying around with new cider recipes to savor throughout the season.
Last year, I shared this hot mulled cider recipe. This year, I’m serving it up cold – and with a little kick. Cinnamon and ginger infused simple syrup add sweetness and spice to the tart cider and lemon juice base. A shot of bourbon leaves you with a warm finish – even when enjoying this chilled drink. It’s the perfect ode to the season.
