Cider isn’t just something you drink in the fall! It can also be a lovely cocktail ingredient that gives a little zip to your sip (I am totally joking with that phrasing although the sentiment is accurate). Here are some crisp and bright cider cocktails perfect for any time of year.
The Sideshow Cocktail ~ Mixing cider with gin gives a summery twist to the cider cocktail. Add in a little herbacious Benedictine and bitters and you have a winner.
Cider Rum Punch ~ Thyme simple syrup adds a fresh flavor to this punch that makes it a fun choice for summer.
Apple Cider Sangria ~ Few things are more summery than Sangria. Have fun with the choice of fruit and make it for a backyard barbecue.
Maple Cider Cherry Whiskey ~ Grab some cherries from one of the summer roadside stands and get to making this cider and whiskey cocktail!
Hard Cider Ginger Shandy ~ Ginger beer and hard cider are a refreshing take on a shandy that will go great with a sunny day.
