Hard Apple Whiskey Sours are a fun twist on a classic cocktail. This drink is slightly sweet, slightly tart, and perfect for sipping on crisp fall nights. Bursting with apple flavor and a note of pure maple syrup, it’s basically an apple orchard in a glass.
These apple whiskey sours are quick and easy to make. Simply add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and lightly shake to combine. Pour over ice and enjoy!
Why KJ Loves
Hard Apple Whiskey Sours
Hard Apple Whiskey Sours are the perfect Fall cocktail! Sweet and crisp from the hard apple cider, loaded full of apple flavor from the apple whiskey and just the right amount of sour from the fresh lemon juice. This is the cocktail you need to be sipping on these cool, Fall nights!
Hard Apple Whiskey Sour Ingredients
Replace the classic whiskey with apple whiskey for a punch of apple flavor.
The hard apple cider brings the apple flavor home and provides the “fizz” for this fall cocktail.
Lemon juice is the “sour” to our apple whiskey sour.
Instead of simple syrup, use a cozy fall alternative. Make sure you use pure maple syrup (not the artificial stuff!).
You’ll use crushed or cubed ice for this cocktail.
If you want, you can get festive with your ice cubes! Check out different silicone ice cube molds to get different shapes and sizes. You could also add apple slices to your ice cube trays before you freeze them. We’re all about the apples with this cocktail!
Serve Them Up!
Want to take this cocktail over the top? Rim the glass in cinnamon sugar for the ultimate sip!
Get fancy and top with apple slices, maraschino cherries, or lemon peel.
This cocktail is best served by the glass. If you’re making a large pitcher of hard apple whiskey sours, wait to add the hard apple cider until right before serving.
