Apple and fall spices combine for this great apple cocktail!



When we think of fall, we think of apples. Being in Nebraska, and an hour’s drive away from Nebraska City, where Arbor Day started, we have a lot of apple orchards in our area. We know most people think of pumpkin flavors when they think of fall, but to us, it’s apples.

Cocktail with cinnamon sticks




In honor of our love of apples, we wanted to do a fall cocktail that honored them. We knew we wanted the light flavor of apple, but with fall spices and made it as easy as possible. We thought this gin and tonic was perfect!

Apple Cocktail

This apple cocktail is not infused with the fall spices, they are added later as garnish. But, in adding them before you drink it, you inhale the wonderful scent of cinnamon and star anise every time you take a sip, so we encourage you to have them as a garnish.

Apple Infused Gin

The apple infused gin is best with a London dry gin. You can use any apple, but we don’t advise a granny smith, it would be too sour in our opinion. Also, please use a quality tonic, as this is such a simple drink, it needs to have high quality ingredients.

Cheers to this apple cocktail, and we hope you enjoy the fall flavors it brings!
