A cozy winter cocktail – Cinnamon Apple Cider Spritz – Jessica Michelle Photo – Port Jefferson, NY

Who doesn’t love a good cocktail; especially one that’s perfect for these cozy evenings in and parties for the new year! I wanted to create something that was warming, simple and versatile. You can even omit the liquor for your expecting friends and it is still equally delicious. I used a local unfiltered pressed apple cider and all fresh ingredients to create this tasty cocktail. I made this for family over the holidays and it was such a huge hit.

Recipe

  • 8 oz. of Cinnamon liquor of your choice (Fireball is a popular choice)
  • 1 ½ cup unfiltered apple cider
  • 4 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 1-2 lemons)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • Generous pinch of sea salt
  • Sparkling apple cider

Combine all ingredients except sparkling cider in to large shaker or pitcher with ice. Shake until well mixed. Pour over fresh ice to 2/3’s full and top with the sparking cider. Garnish with apple slices and a lemon twist. Sip and enjoy!
