Honeycrisp Maple Bourbon Cocktail

The following recipe and photography was provided by recipe developer and food photographer, Ashley Durand of Plate & Pen.

Warm or cold, this apple cider-inspired adult friendly drink really hits the spot on a fall evening.

Maple Bourbon Honeycrisp Cocktail

Honeycrisp seems to be the apple of the season, so I couldn’t resist making it the star of this seasonal sipper. Spiked with bourbon and infused with Heinen’s delicious bourbon barrel aged maple syrup, serve this cocktail in a glass rimmed with pumpkin pie spice and granulated sugar to achieve maximum fall flavor.

Let’s drink!

    I have tried these and they are yummy. I can also suggest using an apple cider that is hot. I am serving these for Thanksgiving.
