Maple Bourbon Cider

Crisp temperatures and the crunch of autumn leaves beneath our boots makes us thirst for the flavors of fall. Maple Bourbon Cider is one of our favorite sophisticated-yet-simple craft cocktails—make one just for yourself or multiply to wow a crowd...

Maple Bourbon Cider


  • 1½ oz. bourbon

  • ¾ oz. apple cider

  • ⅓ oz. maple simple syrup (or more, to taste)

  • ¼ oz lemon juice

  • 2 dashes of bitters

  • Ice

To Make Maple Simple Syrup:

  • In a small saucepan, combine equal parts water and maple syrup—we love the local maple syrup made at Land's Sake Farms.

  • In a small saucepan, bring to a boil until maple syrup dissolves. 

  • Allow to cool.


  • Combine all ingredients in shaker or beaker.

  • Stir or shake.

  • Strain into glass.


  • Garnish with cinnamon stick and/or thinly-sliced apple.

  • Top with a splash of sparkling cider or water for effervescence.
