The Spiked Cider Spritzer [cocktail]


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…

Just in time for the weekend too 😉

The Spiked Cider Spritzer [cocktail]

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.
