Just in time for apple season, here is a signature drink idea with an autumn twist! This apple cider cocktail, the first in our October series of apple-infused recipes, just might be the perfect addition to your fall wedding or bridal shower.

Nothing sums up autumn like the taste of apple cider! Readily available at local orchards, cider can be served hot or cold, plain or spiked. We chose to add spirits to our cider to create a unique adult beverage, with an added stick of cinnamon to boost the delicious seasonal flavor.

    This cocktail looks delicious and the cored apple cups are absolutely ingenious. I’d have never thought to do that. Are they very difficult to make without damaging the apples?

    Could this drink be served hot? I love hot cider and I bet this would be wonderful for a chilly autumn night! I may have to try it for myself!

    I love apple flavored cocktails. I bet this would be the perfect accompaniment to a romantic autumn dinner with my fiance. I can’t wait to try it.

    I’d have to agree with Julia, those apple cups are absolutely brilliant!

    I’ve never actually had apple brandy before, I’m sure that would warm you up on a cold night!

    I think it would be best to serve this in apples that way when you’re done with it, you can eat the apple afterwards
