Traditional fall meal plans include warm savory dishes, tart pies and a variety of pumpkin, apple, and maple-flavored meals and treats. Cider and hot coffee are great beverage choices for cooler weather and incorporating a cocktail hour before dinner (paired with our Homemade Raspberry Honey Butter on top of warm biscuits or freshly baked bread is a fun addition too! Who doesn’t love bread and cocktails?

Apple Cider Recipe

Our Apple Cider with a Twist cocktail incorporates some of the best fall flavors: cider and maple. A blend and balance of sweet apple cider with maple syrup screams autumn in a glass. Adding in low-calorie alcohol such as vodka spikes the flavor a bit presenting a tasty drink without the guilt. A fresh apple slice garnish is a great addition!

To create this Maple Cider-tini cocktail, you’ll need: 

1 oz vodka
1 oz apple cider
1/2 tsp maple syrup (included in our Fall Box!)
dash of grapefruit bitters (optional)


Combine these three ingredients and shake over ice. An apple slice garnish is optional but oh so cute. Want to tone down the sweetness? Adding in grapefruit bitters will help make the cider and maple flavors more subtle. 

Serving this fall cocktail with appetizers before dinner (or even after for a sweet treat) is a sure way to inspire your guests and have them wondering how you made this delicious (yet simple) beverage! Looking for a non-alcoholic version? Check out our Apple Cider Mocktail
