How to make a Warm Apple Cider Old Fashioned – Boozing with Boomers Episode 39



Learn how to make a warm Apple Cider Old Fashioned, which is a batched cocktail you can heat up and serve up in an Irish whiskey glass or some other heat resistant glass. It is made with the following ingredients: Maker’s Mark bourbon, Apple Cider, Maple Syrup, fresh squeezed lime juice, Fee Brothers Black Walnut bitters, and cinnamon sticks. The same cinnamon sticks we cook with can also be used as an optional garnish.

My latest creation is a twist on the Old Fashioned, which dates back to 1806. At that time, it was defined as a drink made up of “a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters”. Soon after its creation, American whiskey became very popular and took over as the base spirit. Therefore, most Old Fashioneds today are made with Bourbon or Rye, but the template works for any liquor you desire. The key is to use a good liquor as the recipe is meant to highlight the essence of your chosen spirit.
