I came up with my own apple cider cocktail recipe, which tastes like apple pie a’la mode (but won’t break the calorie bank):
- Apple cider
- Club soda (plain or lemon flavored)
- Cream soda
- Lemon juice
- Booze of choice (blendable whiskey, cinnamon flavored booze of choice, rum, spiced rum, plain, whipped cream or vanilla flavored vodka)
- Garnish of choice (doughnut hole, cinnamon stick, maraschino cherry, apple wedge)
Pour booze into ice filled glass (ice is optional)
Fill glass about half way with club soda.
Pour in about one ounce (equivalent of a single shot) cream soda
Top off with cider and a sprinkle of lemon juice. Stir.
It won’t be a pretty drink, in fact it looks like Flint River water (I grew up in the Flint area and have family living in Flint so I can joke about Flint River water).
Enjoy! Adjust ingredients and portions to your liking.
