With the cool, crisp weather rapidly approaching, I figured, what better time to experiment with some new Fall cocktails! I mixed around a few different things the other night and came up with something truly amazing. I mean, deliciously, mind blowing amazing (even the guys loved this one!). Before I started mixing, I knew I wanted a cocktail with a spicy apple flavor, yet light and freshening at the same time. I decided to use a base of champagne (or really any sparkling wine) and doctor it up with some apple liquor and spices…and then of course, fresh sliced apple! I ended up with a crisp, delightful Fall cocktail I’ve named The Spiked Cider Spritzer…
The Spiked Cider Spritzer [cocktail]
Serves 4 (for myself however, it only served 2 )
one bottle of champagne (or sparkling wine)
5 oz. Apple Schnappes
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
one apple cut into thin slices
Pour champagne and apple schnappes into a tall pitcher, add cinnamon and nutmeg. Top with freshly sliced apples, chill for one hour.
Serve chilled (over ice if you prefer).
