Apple Coffee Cider

Day 279

Apple Coffee Cider
4 shots out of 5

Two more days until Thanksgiving (still in denial).  The kids get out early tomorrow and my oldest is having a friend over to hang out.  Tomorrow marks my last photo shoot of the year (I think hope).  Photo editing, proof passing out (a total Jen term) and I'm done until the orders come back for me to place them.  All in all, it's been a good year and I'm getting excited for the holidays.  

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I found a recipe online for a cocktail and amended it just a little bit, which I think technically makes it mine, therefore I renamed it.  The apple vodka and cider definitely give this cocktail an appley taste for sure.  The coffee liqueur flavor is a surprisingly nice mix with the apple flavors.  Before making my Spiked Apple CiderThanksgiving Cider and tonight's cocktail I honestly did not think that apple cider would be good in a cocktail.  I'll admit it, I was wrong.........WAY wrong!

Here is my recipe for an Apple Coffee Cider:

  • 1 1/2 oz apple vodka
  • 3/4 oz coffee liqueur
  • 1 1/2 oz apple cider
  • 1/2 oz cream
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain your cocktail into a short cocktail glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to being wrong and enjoying it!
