It is OCTOBER already. I feel like I say that every month. Moving on. Tomorrow is Thirsty Thursday and today we have a drink that will give you another excuse to go apple picking. Also, is “Thirsty Thursday” still a thing? I don’t know. What I do know is this drink is delicious and it tastes like fall in a glass. It isn’t cold enough here for pumpkin spice everything, but I’m glad it is still warm enough for this fall-inspired cocktail.
This cocktail does not have a lot of steps, which is a selling point in my opinion because I’m not going to spend thirty minutes making an elaborate cocktail. I’m not a mixologist and let’s be honest, I’m not that patient. The drink is as easy as this: begin with a few ice cubes in each glass. Add 1.5 oz of Jameson whiskey to each glass (that’s the amount in one shot glass). If that’s a little strong for your taste, add 1 ounce or an amount to your liking. If you want an alcohol-free version, this drink is great without the whiskey as well (add an extra ounce of apple cider to each glass if you skip the whiskey). Add the apple cider and ginger ale and give the drink a stir.
