This year, spice up your holiday drink routine and mix up this smoky cider-based sipper. Mulled wine and eggnog are wonderful, but we think it’s time for something fresher. The Smoke & Spice is packed full of apple pie flavor cut by our favorite barrel smoked maple syrup. After you serve up a few batches of these, no one will care if the weather outside is frightful. Plus, who doesn’t love a drink garnished with cinnamon sticks? Read on for the recipe!
Tippleman’s barrel smoked maple syrup is the key to this balanced winter cocktail. It brings the coziness of a campfire into your glass, with delicate buttery notes to perfectly complement the caramel flavor of bourbon. And since all of the other ingredients are top notch, make sure to use the very best cider you can find!
How To Make the Smoke & Spice
2 oz bourbon
1/4 oz smoked maple syrup
1/2 oz allspice dram
3 oz apple cider
3/4 oz lemon juice
