TIP OF THE DAY: The Easiest Fall-Winter Cocktail Recipe

With people dropping by over the holidays, you should have some “instant” refreshments on hand.

Make up a large batch of this tasty apple cider cocktail and keep it in the fridge to grab as needed. Serve it cold, or warm it in the microwave (30 seconds at a time, stirring in between) or on the stove top.

Here’s the easy recipe, per serving:

  • 6 ounces apple cider
  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • Pour over ice in a highball glass
    Optional garnishes: a slice of apple and/or a cinnamon stick. If you have apple schnapps (liqueur), you can add it to the mix (1/2 ounce per drink) or bring the bottle to the table and let guests add their own.

    We purchased a half-gallon of apple cider, poured 1/3 of it into another container and replaced it with Jameson Irish Whiskey. We added rum to the second container, also in a 3:1 proportion of cider to spirits.


    This cocktail works with any nibbles you have on hand, from salty snacks to cookies and other sweets.
