Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktails

Created by: Danielle Cheever, Envision Pretty

Nothing gets a Thanksgiving get-together started like a seasonal cocktail. Apple Cider Bourbon Cocktails are a great option to serve your guests.

The smell of apple cider brings pure nostalgia to the holiday season, and the bourbon adds warmth and a flavorful flair. If you're also serving children or guests who don't drink, you can omit the alcohol and serve apple cider with the sugarcoated rim and garnishes.
