We all need a cocktail recipe in our back pocket for holiday get-togethers and this one is delicious!  It tastes like a grown up fall apple cider and it goes down very easy:)  You can make a large pitcher of this and just pour over ice when your guests begin to arrive.  I will be serving this before Thanksgiving dinner!

This cocktail does not require a lot of random ingredients that only bartenders have on hand. The ingredients are simple and easy to find in your grocery store.  And, obviously you can serve this all year round, but right now during the fall months you can find the most amazing apple ciders in the stores and they just make this drink event that much better. I found a Honeycrisp Apple Cider-AMAZING on its own and even more amazing with whiskey in it:) 
Enjoy and send me your thoughts and questions!


Spiced Whiskey Cocktail

Makes 1 cocktail

4 oz. apple cider
1 oz. carmel syrup (the kind you put in coffee)
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
2 oz. whiskey

Pour all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.  Shake well.  Pour into a highball glass filled with ice.

Garish with cinnamon stick or a slice of apple.

* You can easily make a large batch of this.  I would suggest adding the whiskey individually so people can make theirs as strong or as weak as they like.  Here is the recipe for 16 cocktail servings:

1 gallon apple cider
6 oz carmel syrup
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
