Cozy Cocktail Recipe: Honey Bourbon Apple Cider

honey-bourbon-apple-cider-cocktail-recipeApple cider is a staple in my household during the winter months and, without a doubt, the most popular signature cocktail for fall and winter weddings. Cold evenings and a cidery punch just seem to go hand-in-hand, don't you think?

So when this doozy of a recipe was gifted to us in a swag bag, I simply had to share. The recipe comes courtesy of Clementine Studio (who did the beautiful hand-painted designs shown above) for the HATCH event, a rad meetup event that celebrates creative female entrepreneurs.

I've already tested it out and let me just say, it's basically winter in libation form. Full recipe after the jump. Cheers!

10 oz. apple cider
4 oz. bourbon
1 lady apple, cut in slices
2 tsp. organic, raw honey
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Directions: Place cider, apple slices, honey and cinnamon in pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer. Strain mixture, add bourbon, pour into glasses, sip warm.

As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples—gay, straight and lesbian—can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born. I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
