At your next gathering this holiday season, make cocktails the Swedish way with these cocktails.
1 oz spiced rum
1 tbsp honey
¼ lemon (squeezed)
1 cinnamon stick
7 oz hot Spiced Apple Hard Cider
Mix the rum, lemon and honey together. Add hot Rekorderlig and stir. Serve with a cinnamon stick and an orange wheel.
1 bottle of Rekorderlig Spiced Apple Hard Cider
1oz Golden rum
7 Mint leaves
Cut 1 lime into quarters and muddle in shaker, add rum and mint leaves. Shake with ice and pour into a glass, fill with Rekorderlig Spiced Apple. Garnish with mint.
The Winter Crisp
1 oz Rekorderlig Pear Cider
1 1/2 oz Woodford Reserve Bourbon
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz cinnamon-infused applejack brandy
1/2 oz Averna Amaro
1/4 oz maple solution
1/8 oz St. Elizabeth All Spice Dram
2 dashes angostura bitters
1. To make the cinnamon-infused applejack brandy, combine 4 to 5 cinnamon sticks per bottle of the spirit and allow to rest for 24 hours. For stronger cinnamon flavor, leave in past 24 hours, but note the flavor will become more bitter as well. For a little extra apple flavor, simply core and slice 1 apple per bottle and allow it to rest with the cinnamon.
2. To make the maple solution, in a pan, add equal parts maple syrup to water over medium heat and let simmer for 15 minutes. Strain into a container and let it sit in an ice bath for 15 minutes.
3. To build the cocktail, add ingredients into a shaker, minus the bitters and cider. Shake for 8 to 12 seconds (depending on ice and strength of your shake) and then fine strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice. Top with pear cider. Dash the bitters and ground nutmeg on top, then add a sprig of fresh mint and a thin apple slice for garnish. Serve and enjoy.
