Why We Like It

It’s finally beginning to feel like fall in many parts of the country. And according to Instagram, when fall comes, you’re supposed to take your special someone apple picking at a picturesque orchard.

If you’d rather create a romantic fall-themed cocktail than plan a romantic seasonal outing, or you just want to prolong the date with some drinks at home, mix up a couple of these apple cider-based cocktails made with rye whiskey and apple brandy. Inspired by sweet apple pie, the Sweet Apple Rye gets a slightly spicy kick from ginger liqueur, Peychaud’s Bitters, and a ground cinnamon garnish.
