We originally developed this mocktail recipe for that time of year when the weather and/or calendar begin to say “Autumn.” We wanted something that would be easy to make and could be served hot or cold. This zero-proof cocktail definitely fills that bill. Heat the apple cider or juice on the stovetop (or microwave if you’re in a hurry) and skip the ice for something that will warm you from nose to toes. Cheers!
2 oz. Ritual whiskey alternative
2 oz. apple cider or juice
2 dashes bitters
Combine first three ingredients in a tall glass with ice. Stir until cold. Pour over fresh ice, garnish with cinnamon stick and apple slice, and serve.
