It’s official. Fall is in full swing. Pumpkin carving, apple picking, walking on crunchy leaves – we can’t get enough of it. So, we're celebrating this beloved season in the best way we know how – with a cocktail in hand.
Of course, you can't raise a glass with just any, run-of-the-mill cocktail. No, this season deserves a special toast. Our cocktail of choice? The Apple Ginger Smash. It’s crisp, slightly sweet, with a hint of spice – the perfect complement to season.
Here’s our recipe:
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
2 slices fresh ginger
1.5 oz. gin
2 tsp. sugar
1.5 oz. apple cider
.75 oz. fresh lemon juice
2 oz. ginger ale
Sprig of rosemary
Slice of apple
MASH IT UP
Muddle the ginger and sugar together in a cocktail shaker.
SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE
Add the remaining ingredients and enough ice to fill a cocktail glass. Shake it up, and then pour (unstrained) into your glass.
Dress it up with with a sprig of rosemary. For a little something extra, throw a thin apple slice on top.
Now, just kick back and cozy up.
