North America is known for it’s Bourbon, Maple syrup, and Apple Cider…Get it!
Apple Cider is a tradition in North America during the fall and winter months, often found in local shops, at festivals, and in many homes for the holidays. This beverage is used in many cocktail variations as well, but today we bring you a mix with some other very distinct North American products. Utilizing the Apple Cider as the base, we added in bourbon, maple syrup, and a hint of lemon to cut the sweetness. It is often hard to host a large group and have a complex cocktail on display; however, there is a certain cool and sexy vibe to making a cocktail by hand. This is no gin and tonic either! In order to be the host/hostess with the most/’mostess’, we recommend you demonstrate the steps for guests first, and then lay the tools out at the bar to allow others a shot. They will have fun learning a new drink, and more than likely someone else will take the reins and bartend for the evening, but everyone will remember who made it first :). Cheers!
