Icy Apple Cocktail

I come bearing frozen beverages for this hot weather. To make it even better, there’s alcohol involved.

These slushies are so easy to make. All you need is apple cider (or unfiltered apple juice…as I found out they are the same thing), bourbon, ice, and bitters if you’re feeling adventurous. I like to add some bitters for a slightly more complex flavor profile, but it’s not necessary.

And if you want to go a step further, you can rim the glasses with cinnamon-sugar like I did. I used big, coarse turbinado sugar, but granulated sugar would also work. Just make sure you are more delicate if you use granulated.

If you’re wondering what the apples are in the photos, they are the most amazing dried cinnamon apple slices from whole foods. I plopped a few in my slushie too.
