3Using a tall spoon stir to mix completely.

4Add apple slices and mint to garnish.

A delightful, autumn-inspired blend of apple cider and vodka, this recipe blends two of our syrups: hang onto summer and fall ahead with Spearmint and Ginger. If you can't find blood orange bitters, just use regular bitters and a twist of orange zest. It's a beautiful drink and a pleasant option for Daylight Savings Time entertaining!
