This one gets its name from the instant nostalgia that hits me when I drink it. Think hometown fall festival … roasted nuts, caramel apples, and maple everything. You’ll notice this cocktail calls for 6 oz hard cider, meaning one 12 oz bottle will give you two cocktails … One for you and one for your date that will surely be impressed with your new mixology skills. 😉
Here’s what you need:
1 oz Bourbon
1/2 oz Maple Syrup (or more, to taste)
6 oz Hard Cider
In a mixing glass, or jar with a lid, pour 1 oz Black Walnut SweetShine.
Add 1 oz Bourbon.
Add 1/2 oz (or more) Maple Syrup.
Cover it tight and give it a good shake.
Pour over crushed ice.
Top with cider, and stir.
Garnish with a cinnamon stick if you want to be festive.
