Holiday season is in full effect! If you’re looking for a cocktail to have this holiday season try my Spiced Apple Sidecar.
It’s such a fun holiday cocktail. Made with spiced apple cider, Cognac, maple or cinnamon syrup, fresh citrus, and garnished with fresh fruit.
It’s sweet, tart and full of holiday flavor. A fun seasonal cocktail. If you don’t like cognac feel free to swap with rum, bourbon or whiskey. And if you don’t drink, make it into a mocktail using Ritual Zero Proof Rum.
Let’s Make It!
Lately I’ve been creating more recipes with different types of alcohol. Rum and Tequila are my go-to. So this cognac cocktail is out my norm but it was SO yummy. Definitely gives all the fall/winter feels.
