Cocktail of the Month: Cider House Cocktail
By November 9, 2016 0 933•
Asked to name a fruit that reminds them of fall, most folks would think of apples. From September’s harvest to Halloween bobbing and the all-American apple pie at Thanksgiving dinner, the pomaceous apple plays a starring role in autumn festivities.
’Tis also the season for cider, the unfiltered juice of the apple, whether hard (fermented) or soft (unfermented). Both are building blocks for cocktails that can help counter the chill that sneaks in this time of year.
Personally, I prefer my cider mixed with an aged rum. Often considered a summer spirit, I like the way its full flavor mingles with autumn spices. I found a great cider cocktail recipe on the online retro-cocktail mecca Mr. Booze. This stylish website features a variety of fall tipples, but this one is an original creation by founder Jerry LeNoir.
