Best Fall Cocktail Ever: Apple Cider Ginger Snappy

I do realize that entitling this post “Best Fall Cocktail” is a bit bold. However, what I’m drinking right now is insanely delicious! So much so that I had to share with you, dear readers. So, without further ado, here is the recipe for the above delicious autumn cocktail from Mixologist Vartan:

1 cup local (if possible) apple cider
1 generous shot organic vodka (I like Square One)
1/2 cup alcoholic ginger beer (Crabbie’s is the best)
apple slice and lemon verbena leaves

-add vodka and ice to a glass, then apple cider.
-mix, then top with ginger beer
-garnish with apple slice (or chop apples up and let sink to the bottom) and lemon verbena leaves (I grow my own)

Tastes yummy with sweet potato and artichokes (what I happen to be eating right now).

  1. I was at a charity ball this weekend and had a similar drink called a Fallen Apple–cranapple vodka with ginger ale. It was fabulous! Although, the cinnamon would have been a great addition. 🙂

  2. I was thinking about cinnamon – but not sure how to incorporate…I didn’t have any cinnamon sticks, but I feel like that would have been perfect as a “straw” of sorts.
