Apple-anything becomes a way of life around here in Vermont, so cider is the fall beverage of choice (so, uh, move over pumpkin beer).
Putting whiskey in hard cider is already “a thing,” but I’m pretty sure that cinnamon goes better on top of apple pie than Jack Daniels (debatable, I know).
You could achieve a similar effect by just adding some cinnamon extract to your cider, but the cinnamon whiskey is way more fun.
I had my doubts — I was worried that the whiskey wouldn’t be cinnamon-y enough, or that you wouldn’t be able to taste the cinnamon over the cider. One sip later…”uh, okay, this is damn good.” It’s as if it came out of the bottle as a cinnamon cider to begin with.
This drink is super easy, and would be a lovely little cocktail to make for any of your fall-time friendly gatherings. Dress it up with some apple slices, a cinnamon stick (even cinnamon sugar on the rim!) and you’re ready to impress your guests!
