Cold Cider Cocktails…When It’s COLD?

What I like most about the weather changing from my most favorite season, summer, to fall and then winter is mostly just about the food and cocktails.

There’s nothing more comforting than a beef stew cooking away in the oven or a big pot of soup going on the stove. Those are my comfort foods and the cold weather gives us a reason to make then, and eat them. Because I’m not into skiing or really any winter sports, besides watching some football on tv, I’m all about making some comfort food dinners and hanging out where it’s warm. Inside.

So that gives me good reason to crank up the fire place and make some of these Cold Spiked Apple Cider Cocktails! Cider cocktails are so tasty and refreshing, I hate saving them for just one certain time of the year.

You can find apple cider most times of the year at the grocery store, not just during the fall season so look around. A good quality unfiltered apple juice will make a good stand in if you can’t find apple cider!

Sparkling Fireball Apple Sangria

Top off your Sparkling Fireball Apple Sangria with sparkling apple cider or champagne!

Talk about a showstopper! A sangria recipe that looks as good as this is going to be a hit at any party. Any Fireball mixed drink recipes are going to make people sit up and listen…Fireball has quite the cult following with the younger crowd.

OK, so I’m not the younger crowd but listen up. This is actually where I think Fireball Whiskey has its place. Mixed into a cocktail recipe with lots of other flavors going on. So you get the strong cinnamon flavor but that’s not ALL you’r tasting. It’s sangria perfection!

Big Apple Bourbon Cocktail

This apple bourbon cocktail is one of may favorite fall cocktail recipes. If you look closely, you’ll see that there is a large piece of apple just floating on top of this drink. Not a thin slice for garnish, almost a half of an apple.

So you can have your drink and then a snack after. But the thick pieces of apple really flavors the cocktail as you’re sipping it so it is actually there for a reason. Plus it looks cool too, so there’s that.

Raspberry Cider Whiskey

This drink is made with hard apple cider so it’s going to sneak up on you. The sweet raspberry liquor adds so much fruity flavor along with Crown Apple whiskey, we had to add something to cut the sweetness.

Hard apple cider isn’t as sweet as regular apple cider so it was the perfect solution for this fall cocktail!

Another delicious dessert cocktail, this whiskey apple pie float will definitely impress your guests! A take on a root beer float, but the apple flavored boozy kind.

Get creative with the ice cream flavors you add on top, but for me, vanilla is the perfect flavor!

Apple Bourbon Slush

We have an amusement park by us that serve apple slushies that are so delicious, we have to get one every time we go there. Of course, we had to add bourbon and apple liquor to ours to make it more fun for the adults!
