A little while back, the folks from the wedding planning site Lover.ly reached out to us about a feature cocktail that would be a festive option for a fall wedding! Considering we love making ourselves some pretty drinks (see here and here), we were game!
We put our noggins together and came up with something that combines three things we just can’t get enough of — bourbon, apple, and bubbles! Check out below for our recipe!
You’ll be needing:
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup ginger ale
4 ice cubes
a few pieces of diced apple
a sprinkle of cinnamon & nutmeg for garnish
01. In a mason jar or shaker, combine your ice cubes, bourbon, cider and ginger ale.
02. Put the top on, and shake it like a polaroid picture, or salt shaker, or any other hip hop song lyric of your choosing.
03. Strain into a glass and garnish with apples & spices!
Optional: for a little extra something special, twirl the rim of the glass in a little cinnamon sugar mixture!
Hope you guys are enjoying these crisp autumn days! If you end up trying this out, hashtag #gardeniasandmint, we’d love to see them! And make sure to check out other cocktail recipes on Lover.ly!
