Hard Cherry Cider Cocktail {& Mocktail version}

We’re raising a toast to the holidays! And just because we’re cool like that we’ve even concocted a brand new cocktail for the occasion. Our Hard Cherry Cider Cocktail is perfect for spreading holiday cheer, and the cheer just so happens to be a cherry colored dranky drank. And, another cool (and hot) thing about this cocktail is we’ve made it two ways, both cold and hot!

First up, we got the cold version, and it’s a lot of very cherry and red all over deliciousness. But what makes this cocktail so yummy? Well, I am so glad you asked. First, we start with a great vodka.

Hard Cherry Cider Cocktail

We pulled out the stops for this one and used Stoli Elit. This vodka is so smooth it a crying shame.  Next, we added Maraska Maraschino Cherry Liqueur. The cherry liqueur adds an intensely very cherry flavor, and you’ll swear you are in cherry loving heaven. We add Monin Cherry Syrup and a long pour of equal parts Honey Crisp Apple Cider and Cherry and Lemon French Soda. Also, you’ll want to remember this cocktail is stirred and not shaken. So, mix, pour, serve, and let the good times roll.
