Apple & Gin Autumn Cocktail
You guys, this drink is THE perfect autumn sipper and it would be a fabulous addition to your Thanksgiving celebration. I mean, it’s just not a party without a cocktail or two.
Am I right or am I right?
Tart, slightly sweet, and impossibly smooth with a fruity apple forward taste, hints of warm cinnamon spice and a touch of herbaceous thyme, this gin cocktail isn’t just easy on the eyes, it is also downright DELISH.
Filled to the brim with cozy, warm, fall flavors (and booze), this cocktail just might rival your dessert.
Notes, Tips & Tricks for the best Apple & Gin Autumn Cocktail recipe:
- Always make your cocktails to taste! The measurements in the recipe below are just my recommendations. You should use the recipe as a guideline and not a rule book. If you like a stiffer drink, use more gin. If you really love cinnamon, add more than a dash. Do you!
- You can make the honey simple syrup one of two ways. The quick way: mix the honey and water in a mason jar, or a container with a tight fitting lid and shake vigorously until the honey dissolves. You just need to make sure the water you are using is HOT. The slower way: combine the honey and water in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Stir until the honey dissolves. Both methods end up with the same result – honey simple syrup.
- I used fresh apple cider in the recipe below, but you can use hard apple cider if you really want to get the party started. 😉
- You can easily triple or quadruple (or more) this recipe if serving a crowd. This cocktail would look really pretty in a pitcher with the apple and thyme garnishes. Or you could serve it party punch style in a big ‘ole bowl! It would be the perfect party bowl cocktail!
