White Peach + Apple Cider Cocktail

It’s almost fall y’all, and for me, the cocktails change with the seasons. Right now our local grocery stores have plenty of apples and fresh peaches, I can put these into my favorite fall cocktails. Say hello to our Peach + Apple Cider Cocktail and it has so many delicious fall flavors like apples, peaches, cinnamon, and rye whiskey! Yes, rye whiskey.

The Best Rye Cocktails

So what is rye whiskey anyway?

Well, I’m glad you asked! In the U.S., “rye whiskey” is, according to the U. S. government, is produced from a mash of at least 51 percent rye. Additional ingredients include a mash of corn and malted barley and distilled not exceeding 160 U.S. proof (or 80% abv= alcohol by volume). The whiskey is then aged in charred, new oak barrels for varying lengths of time.

The Best Peach Cocktail

But the key to this refreshing cocktail is the spiced white peach and apple simple syrup I made with lots of cinnamon, rosemary, and clove. And instead of a granulated sugar base, I used light brown sugar.

Using the light brown sugar gives the simple syrup a richer taste which compliments the rest of the ingredients perfectly.

The Cinnamon Simple Syrup

Adding cinnamon sticks to the mixture was a natural because I don’t think anything compliments fall apples better than the unique flavor of cinnamon.

Once all of the ingredients are in the pot allow everything to simmer on low heat for 20-25 minutes with a tight-fitting lid on top.
