Crisp Apple Cider Cocktail

What is an Apple Cider Cocktail?

Our Apple Cider Cocktail recipe is an alcoholic beverage that embodies the very essence of fall with its rich apple flavors, warming spices, and a kick of spirit to keep the chills at bay. Perfect for cozying up by the fireplace or enjoying at festive gatherings.


  • 1½ cups apple cider (preferably unsweetened)
  • 2 oz bourbon or rum (adjust based on your preference)
  • ½ oz lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1 oz maple syrup (adjust for sweetness)
  • A dash of ground cinnamon
  • A dash of ground nutmeg
  • Optional: A thin apple slice for garnish


  1. Pour the apple cider, bourbon or rum, lemon juice, and maple syrup into your Elixir Mixer.
  2. Add in a dash of ground cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Whisk everything together using the Elixir Mixer until well combined.
  4. Pour into your favorite glass, garnish with an apple slice if desired, and enjoy!


Why bourbon or rum with apple cider?

Both spirits have their unique qualities; bourbon brings in caramel and oak notes while rum introduces a sugary sweetness - both complementing the apple cider perfectly.

Can I heat the apple cider for a warm cocktail?

Absolutely! Warm the apple cider on the stove or in the microwave before adding it to the mix. Just be cautious with the Elixir Mixer when dealing with very hot liquids.

Why add maple syrup?

Maple syrup imparts a natural, rustic sweetness, amplifying the autumnal vibes of the cocktail.

How does the Elixir Mixer enhance this cocktail?

The Elixir Mixer ensures all ingredients meld harmoniously, creating a consistent, smooth flavor throughout the drink.
