{Fall Cocktail} Apple Jack

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, a soul warming cocktail is a must. My friends and I shared this warmed up adult treat after a chilly night of trick or treating. It is a perfect pre-Thanksgiving meal drink to prep your tummy for turkey or post-Thanksgiving meal drink to sip on while you lay on the couch and watch football.

Using Jack Daniel’s Bourbon will make it a true Apple Jack, but you can easily replace it with other bourbon or whiskey as achieve the same result.

Apple Jack
4 C apple cider
1 1/2 C bourbon or whiskey
1 TBSP ground cinnamon
Ginger ale

In a medium saucepan, heat apple cider, whiskey and cinnamon just until it simmers. Ladle mixture into mug, three-quarters full. Fill the rest of the mug with ginger ale. Add a dash of cinnamon. Garnish with an apple slice if desired.
