Spiced Apple Cidertini

It's been awhile since I have shared a drink with you all.
Let me share this easy, simple but delicious cocktail.
My little guy and I went to his first fieldtrip,
It was exciting for the little guy even if he had visited this farm numerous times.
It was exciting because he was with his school buddies.
After we have moved here from Los Angeles,
this Farm has been our Disneyland.
Nothing in comparison,
but this is our entertainment in cooler Autumn weekends.
One of the reasons why we love coming here
 is for the farm's doughnuts and cider.
Hillbilly Joe's apple cider is the BEST I think.
I have tasted a lot of cider
and so far this is the only one that makes me crave for cider.
So of course,
I had to bring some home.
The kids love apple cider,
but i give it to them in moderation,
not only because of the sugar content,
 but also
so Mommy and Daddy to enjoy it too.
here's our adult version
 for a before dinner refresher.

1.5 - 2 oz Vodka
4 oz Apple Cider
1/2 oz Simple syrup, (optional)
1/2 tsp Lime Juice
Dash of Cinnamon
  • Put ice in cocktail shaker.
  • Pour vodka, apple cider, lime juice, cinnamon, and vodka.
  • And Shake.
  • Garnish with a sliced apple.
  • Optional for your glass rim:
                      Wet the rim with lime juice.
                      2 tbsp Sugar and a dash of cinnamon
  • Simple syrup is optional, some prefer their cidertini less sweet so I suggest don't add it.  I prefer mine sweet.
  • A girlfriend of mine opt out with the cinnamon in her cidertini, and just use it on the rim of her glass.
So here's to a great weekend!!!

  4. Wow, this looks like such a fantastic drink! I have never had apple cider, but I think I need to go out and buy some. YUM!

    1. I was afraid to drink apple cider for a long time, the reason is I am not too fond of apple juice.
      Moving to Michigan made me try it, my friend finally got me to try it. ;)
      and I Love it!

  5. I adore a yummy cocktail and these look fab! Glad to have found your blog!
