Kick off to another great season of “Leaf Peeping” with this delicious cocktail. This is a fall elixir that will set a precedent for all things fun, fall and fab!
Serves 6 (Recipe can be doubled and makes a great punch!)
1 1/2 cup light spiced rum,
3 cups apple or pear cider,
2 oz vanilla schnapps,
2 oz maple syrup,
1 dash of Angostura Aromatic Bitters,
2 Tbs pressed ginger,
2 Tbs lemon juice,
Garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds, ground nutmeg and a cinnamon
You can control how sweet the party is based on how much schnapps and syrup you add. If you would like something a little less sweet, add just half of the Vanilla Schnapps and Maple Syrup quantity then add an extra squeeze of ginger for a spicy cocktail
Serve shaken straight up, or stirred on the rocks.
Happy leaf peeping from the heart of New England! CHEERS!
