The Old Fashioned is an all-time classic. This cocktail is usually made by muddling sugar with bitters, then adding alcohol, whiskey and finally a twist of citrus rind. Now, there’s nothing wrong with how it is, but in case you fancy a change, we are here to give a new take on the classic drink.  The Apple Cider Old Fashioned has apple instead of orange and a cinnamon stick for some spice. It’s an excellent drink to have at a party (Halloween party?), since it has the typical fall scents and flavors!  Here is what you’ll need…

1/2 c. ice

2/3 c. apple cider

2 oz. whiskey

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Apple slices, for garnish

Cinnamon sticks, for garnish

The directions are very simple. Just mix it all up and then serve over ice, and you’re done! An easy yet effective drink to get the party started. Enjoy!
