This Apple Pie Bourbon Fizz is made with bourbon, homemade apple pie spiced simple syrup, apple cider, and a splash of soda water! It's the perfect amount of sweet and the most wonderful cocktail for fall! I love garnishing it with honeycrisp apple slices and a cinnamon stick!
In a medium saucepan, combine the water, brown sugar, apple, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, and allspice. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Let cool completely, then strain through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl and discard the apples.
To a plate, add the sugar and spices and mix together with your fingers.
Moisten the edge of your glass with apple cider and rim in the apple pie sugar. Fill with crushed ice. Add a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker and add the bourbon, simple syrup, and apple cider. Shake for 20-30 seconds and pour into the glass. Top with the soda water and stir to combine. Garnish with honeycrisp slices and a cinnamon stick!
*Extra apple pie simple syrup will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks! I love using it for any and all fall cocktails, sangria, desserts, pancakes, ice cream, and anything your heart desires!
*If you want to make these pitcher style to serve a crowd, just measure everything out in the quantities that you need, and don’t add the ice and soda water until you’re ready to serve to guests! You can rim all of your glasses in the apple pie sugar and have those ready to go as well!
