Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Center Aisle Cider
Well tomorrow is finally the presidential election. I don’t know about you guys but I’m ready for it to finally be here! This presidential race has been a long and divisive one. I think we can all agree that whoever the next president is, she’ll need to work across the aisle to get things done. This cocktail has that spirit (pun totally intended!) in mind by combining an ingredient from a traditionally blue state, Washington apple cider and one from a traditionally red state, Tennessee whiskey, to form a perfect harmony. The US is a great country and with respectful dialogue and hard work we can accomplish so many wonderful things!
Let’s get to it!
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Pour in the apple cider, whiskey and bitters. Make sure you’re using fresh apple cider, not just shelf stable apple juice. You should be able to find apple cider in the produce or juice sections of your local grocery store. If you’re in a region, like Washington, know for its apples you could go the extra mile and buy cider at a local orchard! The bitters rounds out the sweetness of the cider to make this a smoooooth cocktail. 🙂
Pop on the top and shake, shake, shake. You’ll be serving this drink up, so pour into stemmed glasses. This makes 4 small, or 3 large cocktails and would be a great cocktail for an election party.
Garnish with a small apple slice and revel in this election almost being over!
I also wanted to mention that Emilie over at Cookies for England was nice enough to feature me today in her “meet the Neighbors” segment, so go check it out!
