Dash of angostura bitters
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 ounces (60 ml) bourbon or rye whiskey
Ice, for serving
Garnish with Orange, apple slices, and cinnamon sticks

In a lowball glass, combine the apple juice, bitters, and sugar. Swirl glass around until mixture is combined and sugar is dissolved. Add the ice and whiskey. Top with orange, apple slices, and a cinnamon stick.



1 oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. Gold tequila
5-6 oz. Mighty Dry Cider
Orange segments and apple slices
Cinnamon + Cane sugar + Coarse sugar for glass rimming

2 oz Gingergrass Cider
2 oz Caramel Vodka
1 oz Butterscotch Schnapps
Sliced fresh apple for garnish– we are loving our dry farmed Honey Crisps!


Rim your martini glass with caramel or cinnamon sugar. To get the cinnamon sugar to stick to the glass, dip the rim in a bit of the Gingergrass cider, then the cinnamon sugar.

Combine the Gingergrass, caramel vodka, and butterscotch schnapps in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain the mixture into the rimmed martini glass and garnish with fresh sliced apple. Cheers!
