  • 2 Tbsp Apple Butter
  • 2 oz Bourbon (we like Buffalo Trace)
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider
  • 2 shakes Angostura Bitters
  • Ice

Sugar Rim for Glass

  • 2 Tbsp Coarse Sugar (or sugar/brown sugar mix)


  1. Sugar the rim of the glass by holding the glass upside down and dipping the glass in apple cider about 1/2 inch. Then dip in coarse sugar, or a sugar/brown sugar mix. Set aside.

  2. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker.

  3. Add ice and shake for 20-30 seconds.

  4. Pour over large ice cubes in an old fashioned glass.

  5. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and thinly sliced apple.
