Sparkling Pumpkin Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktails

WARNING: these are both delicious and dangerous at the same time. All you can really taste is the cider, so maybe you just might have 1 too many? But it's Thanksgiving, and what's wrong with a little extra holiday spirit?! Feel free to use your favorite apple cider, or homemade (even better!), I just couldn't turn down this pumpkin apple cider at my local market, and I loved it so much that I used it again in some cider margaritas for taco night with friends. The point is, you need a good cocktail on Thanksgiving. And this my friends is it. 

Sparkling Pumpkin Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktails
Makes 2 cocktails


  • 5 oz. sparkling pumpkin apple cider (I used Sprout's Farmer's Market Brand)
  • 2 1/2 oz. bourbon
  • ice
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 rosemary sprigs for garnish
  • 2 cinnamon sticks for garnish
  • 1 orange slice, halved for garnish

Pour sugar and cinnamon onto a small plate and mix well. Run orange halve around the rim of each glass and carefully set the glass rim into the cinnamon sugar. Fill the glass with ice.

Combine the cider and bourbon in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Pour over the iced glasses and garnish with a rosemary sprig, a cinnamon stick, and an orange slice.
