Apple Cinnamon Whiskey Sour

September 12, 2017

You guys I made the perfect cocktail for fall and I’m not even going to be shy about it. A couple of weeks ago I was racking my brain trying to think of fall recipes to create when it hit me that it is apple season and fresh apple cider is in abundance! I mean, Could anything pair better with apples and cinnamon other than bourbon? I think not! I’ve been making these religiously since the first batch and both Jamie and I agree that this cocktail is perfect to sip on during crisp fall evenings, especially now that all of the fall shows have begun (this cocktail + American Horror Story = perfection!). You can also make this cocktail sans egg white but I just love the frothy sweet foam at the top and it sure makes for a pretty spot to garnish this cocktail with a dehydrated apple slice. Cheers!
