All of the ingredients needed for hard apple whiskey sours on a table.

Hard Apple Whiskey Sour Ingredients

Apple whiskey

Replace the classic whiskey with apple whiskey for a punch of apple flavor. 

Hard apple cider

The hard apple cider brings the apple flavor home and provides the “fizz” for this fall cocktail. 

Lemon juice

Lemon juice is the “sour” to our apple whiskey sour.

Maple syrup

Instead of simple syrup, use a cozy fall alternative. Make sure you use pure maple syrup (not the artificial stuff!).

Ice

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!

Rims

Want to take this cocktail over the top? Rim the glass in cinnamon sugar for the ultimate sip!

Garnish 

Get fancy and top with apple slices, maraschino cherries, or lemon peel.

Share!

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.
