Well, hello ladies and gents, recently the lovely Winter Adams and I were perusing a drink menu at a local watering hole just chatting up the Pink Puck when we found ourselves in the company of the most glorious drink you have ever tasted. Being the cheerful, celebratory people we are, Winter and I had chosen a festive Apple flavored drink. With an overall apple flavor, cinnamon, and sweetness, it was like a kicked up apple pie–in a glass. We decided that such a lovely piece of drink seasonal finery had to be shared with our fellow hockey fans. Thus, I took it upon myself to find out the ingredients and correct proportions to duplicate this wonderful concoction. So, when you’re planning your next hockey get together–keep this in mind!
-1 shot Fire Cinnamon Whisky
– 1 bottle Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider
-1 teaspoon Lime Juice
-1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
-1 teaspoon Agave Nectar
To duplicate this drink without it tasting too cinnamon-y or not at all like the drink we had envisioned, I had to mess with the ingredient proportions. First, I added the whisky to my glass, along with the lime juice, lemon juice, and agave nectar. I stirred this all together with a spoon. Then, I added my Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider (and surprise!) I had the yummiest seasonal drink ever. If you want to add a cinnamon and sugar rim to your glass before you mix, go for it! Though my drink was probably made slightly different from the one Winter and I originally had, it was still delicious. You can even add ice if you’d like! Enjoy!
