Easy & cozy fire honey apple cider cocktails perfect for autumn! The crisp flavor of a nice sparkling cider is perfectly balanced out by warming notes of a good hard apple cider & ground cinnamon, the spice of a strong cinnamon whiskey, & the bright honeycrisp apples. You will love making these fire honey apple cider cocktails for your friends & family all season long!
The thing is, these fire honey apple ciders are incredibly well-balanced. The booziness from the whiskey is definitely there, but they’re not so spirit-forward that they’re difficult to drink. The apple cider or sparkling apple cider adds nice sweetness (but not too much! that’s why it’s important to use a cider vs juice), which is contrasted by the zing & tang from the Strongbow Honey apple cider beer & crisp, fresh honeycrisp apples. A sprinkle of cinnamon adds the final, perfect, warming touch of spice that makes these fire honey apple cider cocktails the kind of drink you want to make over & over again.
