Rye and apple cider cocktail

One of our favorite cocktails during the holidays is this simple three ingredient drink made with rye, sparkling apple cider and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Our ingredients of choice are Bulleit Rye and Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider, but feel free to use your brand of choice. The great thing about this cocktail is that it’s perfect for parties. Not only is it simple, but guests can make their own. We typically setup an area by the bar with the ingredients and a bucket of ice and let people go to town.

We hope you give this festive cocktail a try the next time you’re relaxing by the fireplace or hosting a party.

Kait’s version
1 part rye
2 parts sparkling cider
1 dash of ground cinnamon

Joe’s version
1 part rye
1 part sparkling cider
1 dash of ground cinnamon
(sometime’s he skips the last two ingredients entirely)

Add an ice sphere to a whisky tumbler or fill it with ice cubes. Pour in the rye and cider, then add a sprinkle of ground cinnamon on top. Stir a few times with a spoon and enjoy!
