Most folks love apple pie. Many folks love cocktails. I love both. You know where I'm going with this, right? Here's a little bit of hot apple pie in a glass. With rum. You're welcome.
Oh, and don't freak out at the use of Dale DeGroff's Pimento Bitters, they are basically an allspice bitters. The allspice berry is a berry from the pimento tree which has an earthy clove, nutmeg and cinnamon flavor. (If you happen to have St. Elizabeth's Allspice Dram you can use that instead.)
You can serve this cold or hot.
1 Oz. Dark Rum
1 Tsp. Cinnamon Liqueur
3 Oz. Apple Cider
1/2 Oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Dashes Dale DeGroff's Pimento Bitters
Garnish: Dried Apple Slice, Cinnamon Stick
Tools: Cocktail Shaker (if making cold)
Glass: Cocktail (cold) or Glass Mug (hot)
Heat the cider.
Add all the other ingredients to a mug, pour in the heated cider, stir, garnish and serve.
Shake the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker, strain over ice into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish and serve.
