Apples and whiskey go together like salt and pepper. And if you haven’t noticed, apples come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Each one has a different mix of nutrients that leaves you with a whole different spectrum of flavors. Combine that with whiskey, one of life’s most elegant flavor pairings, and you have a classic that you can enjoy any time of day.

Look, I love a great cocktail and I love whiskey, but I don’t love the fact that my favorite drink is kind of a girl’s drink (pink or otherwise).

Here’s a recipe for a fruity, sweet, summery Apple Whiskey Cocktail. It’s a drink for when you’re feeling a little hungry, or maybe just at that magical time between the end of the workday and the beginning of your evening out.

This couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m eager for autumn!

 

Of course, I used some for this very simple apple pie filling, but I wanted to make something with the rest of it that wasn’t just apple sauce.

To prepare apple cider, I ended up needing many apples. Who knew making homemade apple cider could be so simple… and delicious?!

The little quantity of additional sugar — a few tablespoons of maple syrup – is particularly impressive.

I’m hoping to come up with a few fall-inspired drinks that use apple cider as a mixer. I can’t wait to share them with you!

For this Cocktail with Apple Whiskey, I used a few of those apples to infuse whiskey.

I’m really enjoying it, and I hope you will as well!
