Ingredients 

  • ½ lemon
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (see notes) or brown sugar
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1.5 fluid ounce (45 ml) Jack Daniel's Fire whiskey or use whiskey and 1 teaspoon cinnamon syrup (more to taste)
  • 8 fluid ounces (235 ml) apple cider

Add-ins (optional)

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 apple cut in slices

Instructions

Rim the glasses (optional)

  • Juice half a lemon. Carefully pour the juice onto a plate or in a small container. Add the sugar to another plate or container.
  • Gently dip the rim of a clean glass in lemon juice, then in coconut sugar. Make circular motions to coat the rim evenly.

Make the cocktail

  • Add the ice cubes to a glass or punch bowl. Pour the Jack Daniel's Fire (or whisky and cinnamon syrup) into the glass or cocktail bowl. Fill it with apple cider. Give it a stir with a spoon or a cinnamon stick. Serve with apple slices if desired.

Notes

  1. Coconut sugar has a subtle toffee flavor that works really well with this cinnamon apple cider cocktail. Brown sugar works well, too!
  2. To make it alcohol-free: replace the apple cider with sparkling apple juice (or apple juice mixed with a splash of sparkling water) and use cinnamon syrup instead of cinnamon whiskey. 
  3. For a crowd (8 cocktails): you can make the cocktail in a punch bowl. Use half a gallon (64 fluid ounces) apple cider and 12 ounces Jack Daniel's Fire.
