Friday Feature Cocktail: Cinnful Apple

With everybody posting Facebook statuses and Tweets about going apple picking this weekend, I’ve decided that rather than joining in on the apple picking fun (a hobby I have never found too appealing) I’m going to stick with a hobby I do enjoy- drinking cocktails- and will sip a nice spiked Apple Cider instead. The Original Cinn schnapps is the perfect addition to the appley goodness of the cider, and creates a nice apple pie taste in liquid form!

Cinnful Apple

  • 2 parts Hiram Walker® Original Cinn Cinnamon Schnapps
  • 5 parts Apple cider

Serve over crushed ice or try it warm. Garnish with apple slice.

I hope you all have a wonderful fall weekend!

Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day!

As I was catching up on exciting daily happenings, as provided by Twitter this morning, I realized that St. Patrick’s day is only 6 months away from today! As someone who is just about half Irish, I find it fully acceptable to celebrate the halfway mark to such a great holiday! Tonight after work I fully intend to open up some Jameson and mix myself up a (or maybe two) delicious whiskey cocktail(s).

First up, will be a perfect cocktail to accompany the fall weather and autumn mindset:

Apple Crumble Martini
  • 1.5 parts Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • .75 part Hiram Walker Butterscotch Schnapps
  • 1.5 parts Pressed Apple Juice
  • .5 part Lime Juice
  • 1 part Sugar Syrup
 Shake and strain.

Next up will be a fun drink from Mama Walker’s breakfast flavored liqueurs: Mama said WHAT?!

  • 2 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon Liqueur
  • 1 part Jameson Irish Whiskey

Shake all ingredients in shaker with ice, strain into chilled shot glass and serve

One more summer cocktail…

In classic New England fashion the weather has drastically changed from just yesterday and it once again feels like the warm, humid mid-summer months outside. I am not one to complain about warm weather so I am going to whip myself up a nice summer cocktail (for possibly the last time) and enjoy a nice evening cocktail outside! Something light and fruity is definitely what I need to toast to summer one last time before fall moves in for good, so I’ll be enjoying a nice Citron Long Board!

  • 2 parts ABSOLUT® Citron Vodka
  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
  • 1 part Cranberry Juice

Fill a chilled highball glass with ice cubes. Add ABSOLUT Citron and triple sec. Topup with cranberry juice. Garnish with lime.

Cheers to another night of summer 🙂

Friday Feature: The Golden Delicious

So I’m sure you’re thinking, “It’s only the first week of September, slow down with the fall recipes!” and normally I would agree, but it definitely felt like an autumn afternoon here in New England so I feel inclined to imbibe accordingly. What says fall more than a nice golden delicious apple? That’s right, nothing. So this week’s featured cocktail is the Golden Delicious.

Golden Delicious:

  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Caramel Apple Liqueur
  • 1 part ABSOLUT® Citron
  • 1 part Sour Mix

Shake well with ice and serve up.

This recipe will also be Sunday’s feature cocktail and will serve as a toast to the Big Apple and the New York Giants! Go GMen!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
