Spiced cider

This was an interesting drink.  I want to play with the ingredients a little more.  I mean, I love cider, but not perfect.

I made the bitters as well.  The bitters were super easy to make.  I did not take any other pictures though.  So I will make more and take pictures and then post about it.

Spiced Cider


  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon spicy cinnamon bitters
  • 1  cinnamon sugar* (for the rim)


Place the cinnamon sugar on a plate. Rub the rim of a tall tumbler with a slice of lemon then dip it into the cinnamon sugar. Set aside. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add all the ingredients and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain into the cinnamon-sugar rimmed glass and enjoy.

*To make cinnamon sugar, combine 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon with 1/4 cup raw sugar and stir.
