Apple Cider Bourbon

Bourbon, Knob Creek, Apple Cider, Apple Cider Bourbon, Adult Beverage, Autumn

It’s still hot here in the Carolinas. Last weekend temps were in the 60’s when I woke up. I sat on the back deck to eat breakfast and drink my coffee. It gave me a little hope that the hot, humid summer would be on its way out soon.

Last autumn, I made some new drinks, inspired by Pinterest, the cold weather and my absolutely insane October-December. This beauty, apple cider bourbon was my favorite, by far. I even like this better than apple cider margaritas. I know! Crazy, right?

I found the recipe, here. And while I usually change up recipes I find online {almost 100% of the time}, this one didn’t need any changes. It’s perfect.

In honor of my dreams of Autumn, football, turning leaves and sweater weather . . . here is Apple Cider Bourbon.


4 oz apple cider {I buy a fresh cider, made here in my area! So delish.}

2 oz bourbon {I buy Knob Creek}

2 tablespoons cinnamon

1 tablespoon sugar

orange wedge

rosemary sprig


1. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl.

2. Cut an orange and use a wedge to coat the edges of your glass.

3. In a shaker with ice, combine the cider and bourbon. Pour into your glass.

4. Garnish with an orange wedge and small sprig of rosemary.
