Sip seasonally this week with an Apple Cider Fizz from Nolet’s Silver Gin.
This fun easy to mix cocktail uses a seasonal blend of fresh apple cider and cinnamon for a drink that’s perfect for holiday parties, cocktail specials, and winter happy hours. This is a great option for apple cider cocktail lovers who aren’t into the traditional fall pairing of whisky or brown spirits.
What makes this cocktail shine is the use of Nolet’s Silver Gin, a stunning spirit that is fruit and floral forward rather than heavy juniper. This flavor palate is an ideal match to the range of notes in a fresh apple cider and makes this cocktail an excellent addition to any fall bar menu. The recipe is easily transitioned to be vegan if needed with the use of an alternative milk and aquafaba.
Apple Cider Fizz
- 2 oz. NOLET’S Silver Gin
- 1 oz. Apple Cider
- 1/2 oz. Lemon Juice
- Dash of Cinnamon
- 1/4 Heavy Cream (or sub with unsweetened Almond Milk)
- 1 Egg White (or 1 1/2 oz. Aquafaba)
- 1 1/2 oz. Club Soda (to top)
- Demerara Sugar and Cinnamon for the Rim
Preparation: Before mixing, prepare the glass by combining 1/4 cup of Demerara sugar and 2 tsp. ground cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Moisten the rim of the glass with a wedge of lemon, and dip into sugar mixture, turning to distribute evenly. Combine all ingredients but the club soda to a mixing tin without ice. Shake vigorously for about a minute (seriously), add ice, and continue to shake until the outside of the tin frosts up and the liquid inside is cold and frothy. Strain into the sugar-rimmed glass, leaving a little room for soda. Gently pour soda in and spoon remaining froth on top, then garnish with a cinnamon stick!
