Kyle and I both love fresh apple cider. We drank it by the gallons last fall up in Maine. Even though there aren’t very many Missouri orchards, the apples are still pretty darn fresh in the midwest. We whipped up a batch of last year’s cinnamon apple autumn sangria with a peck of fresh apples last weekend, and it was everything I remembered it to be– except for the added satisfaction of getting to pick the apples ourselves. In addition to my annual batch of fall sangria, I wanted to spice things up in CoMo with a fresh apple cider cocktail. I first saw a recipe for apple cider bellinis on Creative Culinary a few weeks back, and I adapted this fall cocktail recipe to be a little less sweet. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions and a printable recipe card. 

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this easy apple cider cocktail:

  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 Tbsp Cointreau
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • Bottle of Prosecco, chilled
  • Fresh apple slices (for garnish)

Combine the apple cider, Cointreau, and maple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. You can substitute any orange liqueur for Cointreau if needed. Shake until chilled. In case you’re curious, this fun Shake, Shake, Shake cocktail shaker was a birthday gift from Ashley Brooke, and I love it. You can find it online here
