Drink of the Week and I came up with a new cocktail to celebrate my favorite season, autumn!
The Harvest Highball uses apple cider, ginger liqueur, rye whiskey, and just a touch of cinnamon. It is a crisp, dry cocktail with an apple-y overtone and a ginger kick. The cinnamon and apple mixed just enough to make me think of fresh baked apple pie.
We used our own homemade apple cider, but you can use can use the apple cider from the store if you prefer.
1 1/2 oz rye whiskey
1 oz ginger liqueur
Cinnamon to garnish
In a cocktail shaker, shake the rye and ginger liqueur together. Pour over ice into a glass. Fill the glass with apple cider and sprinkle fresh cinnamon on top. Voila!
