FOOD: Autumn Cider Cocktails

Welcome Made By Girl readers! I'm Jen from Pretty Eats popping up with a jewel-toned
cocktail perfect for chilly nights, Cider Cocktails. Autumn's star of the season, a high quality
apple cider, elevates these drinks to a special occasion all on their own. I first take one of my
favorite Rye whiskeys, and let it sit with cinnamon sticks and fresh apple slices, then add it to ice
cold cider. A fun variation on this cocktail is to add sparkling cider instead! Either way you serve
it, this Autumn Cider Cocktail will bring some big Cheers!

Autumn Cider Cocktails
Ingredients: 4 cocktails
• 1 cup high quality Rye whiskey
• 2 cinnamon sticks
• 3 star anise
• 3 fresh apples
• 3 cups fresh apple cider
• 4 sugar cubes, if desired

• In a lidded jar, combine Rye, cinnamon sticks, star anise, and 1 sliced apple. Allow to sit
for 1-2 days.
• Strain Rye mixture into a clean pitcher, discarding apple slices and spices.
• Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, combine 1/2 cup spiced Rye with 1 1/2 cups cider.
Shake well / *if using sparkling cider, simply stir the cocktails, do not shake.
• Pour immediately into glasses (with a sugar cube, if desired), and enjoy!!
