Easy Fall Cocktail



I always look for a new fall cocktail to enjoy on Halloween, while giving out candy to the many trick or treaters we have in our neighborhood. Last year I enjoyed an Apple Pie Cocktail and this year, will be making an easy fall cocktail with just two ingredients. Both ingredients are perfect for a fall evening and the apple cider and butterscotch flavors are a delicious combination. I will be serving this over ice, but you could also serve this hot if you need a drink that will warm you up.


Apple Cider and Buttershot Cocktail for One

Fill cocktail glass with good quality apple cider. Add one shot of Dekuyper Buttershot Schnapps. Mix with a drink stirrer and add ice if desired. If serving hot, warm apple cider first, then add the shot of schnapps. Enjoy!


Even though I no longer have little ones at home, I still try to make the Halloween evening festive. We will have spooky lights in the trees, a carved jack o lantern and a big bowl of candy to greet the little monsters. And, this yummy and festive cocktail to enjoy :-)
