Introduction: "Fall in New England" Cocktail

About: Kitch-n-Crafts is a blog dedicated to cooking and crafting ideas and recipes.

We’ve been itching to make our own unique cocktail for awhile, one that you can’t find in any book – like those we usually use when we’re looking for a boozy weekend beverage.

To start, I took some of the things that Tim and I like the most. Two things that are delicious on their own, and would also make the perfect base for a delicious drink. For Tim, that’s rye whiskey. For me, that’s apple cider (and basically everything else relating to Fall).

After the base, I settled on maple syrup as my sweetener and a pinch of cinnamon because it just goes so well with the rest of the flavors!

I was so proud of the cocktail that I made that I told my folks who instantly informed me that it sounded like another cocktail called the Bourbon Apple Cider Sour. Bummer! However, I decided that my drink was just different enough to warrant its own name: Fall in New England!

Step 1: The Cocktail

1 ½ oz. Rye Whiskey
1 ½ oz. Apple Cider
