Apple Cider Spritz

    I recently came across a recipe on Pinterest and it inspired me to try a new cocktail to celebrate the first inklings of fall. I didn’t want to outdo my affinity for Aperol Spritz, so we’re putting those on hold for now and will be sipping on (we’ll call it…) Apple Cider Spritz instead. I ended up tweaking the recipe a bit to suit my palette a bit better and love how fresh and flavorful it turned out.

    Like most drinks approved by me (refreshingly sweet/flavors canceling out the alcohol…), you can only have one or two before calling it quits. It’s like cider…you’re asking for a headache if you overdo it. I like to find recipes that have few ingredients for ease and time sake, so if you’re a newbie in the culinary cocktail world like me, you’ll appreciate this! It’s also nice for upcoming get together to have a few ingredients out for guests to throw together themselves. So cheers to humpday and many more entertaining posts to come this season!

    Serving for 2

    2 Ounces of Gin (I used Hendrick’s)
    .75 ounces of fresh lemon juice
    4 ounces of apple juice or apple cider
    4 ounces of ginger beer, chilled
    1 apple (garnish)
    ground nutmeg (garnish)


    Combine gin, lemon juice and apple juice in a cocktail shaker with ice.
    Shake well and pour into glasses filled with ice.
    Top with ginger beer, stir and garnish with an apple slice and a dash or two of nutmeg.

    • sounds so good and I don’t even like gin! I have to try this

      • Honestly, I wouldn’t say *I like* gin, but a few cocktails I’ve tried (usually with cucumber or some sort of refreshing fruit) you can’t taste any alcohol which is why I like them. 🙂

    • Faith

      Yum, this sounds so good and perfect for the season. I’ll have to give it a try. Thanks!
      Also, looking forward to more entertaining posts. Those are some of my favorites 🙂

      • It’s so good! It tastes just like apple cider but with a little twist (the ginger beer makes it taste so refreshing) More entertaining post to come! xx

    • Yum yum yum! I’m doing a sips round up for fall and will definitely include this recipe!

      • Aw, thanks lady! I love your cocktail/dessert round ups, they’re the cutest!

    • Want to make this, ready for fall! I always find its difficult to find apple cider on the west coast or maybe its just LA. On the east coast, its everywhere! Yum!

      • Oh, really! So interesting. Well this recipe is super easy! I hope you enjoy xx

    • That sounds absolutely delicious! Pinning now so I remember to make it this season (once it actually cools down a bit in Texas haha)!
