It’s the first day of fall. The leaves are changing, the sky is grey and there’s a hint of the blustery winds that indicate that winter is just around the corner… screech to a grinding halt! I live in LA where it will be a bright and shiny 85 degrees today. Man, do I miss weather! I “do fall”, though. I will pump that AC and make a hearty soup. I’ll slip on some comfy socks and bake a spiced dessert… and I’ll drink the hell out of an autumn themed cocktail! My friend Liz and my mama were visiting over the weekend and that’s exactly what we did! I combined my favorite bourbon with a classic unfiltered apple juice and spiced it up with Fireball whiskey! Y’all got Fireball? As our friend Tyler would say 🙂
You will need the following:
- Bourbon, I like Maker’s Mark… As you know!
- Fireball Whiskey!
- Apple juice or cider
- The juice of 1/4 lemon
- Sparkling water
- Measure 1 shot of bourbon, 2 shots of Fireball, the juice of 1/4 lemon and 1/2 cup of apple juice into a shaker glass. Give it a swirl and pour over two ice filled double old fashioned glasses.
- Top off with sparkling water.
- Garnish with an apple round and drink up!
Swearing Mom out.
