Maple Bourbon Apple Cider Recipe

Maple Bourbon Apple Cider Recipe

Maple Bourbon Apple CiderI just took a cooking class at the Kitchen at Middleground Farms out in Wilsonville, Oregon south of Portland during a press tour of Oregon. We didn’t make any cocktails, but we made a pork loin with maple syrup that was amazing. That got me on a maple syrup kick and I always seem to have bourbon on hand for some reason or another and if it’s fall there’s always apple cider in the house! So, with those three things sitting around the next thing I know I’ve got myself a maple bourbon apple cider cocktail.

Maple Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktail Recipe

2 cups apple cider
1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp simple syrup
In a medium size saucepan on low heat, combine all ingredients and stir.
Let cool for 15 minutes before serving
Serve in west proof glasses and enjoy!
What’s your favorite way to enjoy bourbon?
I think bourbon in apple cider is my favorite way. With your left over ingredients you can make an apple cider hot toddy. Keep in mind this is more work than the cocktail recipe above.

Apple Cider Hot Toddy

  • 4-6 oz apple cider
  • 1-2 cinnamon sticks.
  • 1 Tablespoon honey.
  • 4 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice.

In a small pot, combine apple cider, cinnamon, honey, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and stir in bourbon..

    Next time I am there, I’ll expect you to make some of this “brew.” Sounds good.

    We loooooved this so much, we made it two nights in a row. Would have made it three, but didn’t want to get too carried away. 😉
    If you’re not a fan of super sweet, leave out the simple syrup. It was still plenty sweet for us without it.
    Thanks for the fab fall recipe. Our new fav!
