It’s starting to feel like fall around here. The mornings are cooler, the sunsets a little earlier and you can see that the leaves are starting to turn. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year because the weather is perfect for outdoor fun and there is always a festival or farm to visit. Fall also brings back some of my favorite flavors like pumpkin and apple. As soon as the weather cools event just a little I find myself in the mood for apple pie and ciders.
Which is what inspired me to make this Four Roses Double Bourbon Apple Pie Ale. I wanted a drink that tasted like fall the from the first sip and didn’t disappoint. I often find apple flavored drinks to be on the sweet side. This cocktail has the right mix of sweet and spice and it packs a punch, hence the double bourbon in its name. It’s perfect for warming you up on a chilly fall night.
Four Roses Double Bourbon Apple Pie Ale
3 ounces Four Roses Bourbon

Slice apple into thin slices, place in a shallow container and cover with 1 -2 ounces Four Roses Bourbon, cover and let sit overnight.
Rim a glass with cinnamon and sugar. Place 2-3 slices of bourbon soaked apples in the bottom of the glass. Add 1 shot (approx. 1.5 ounces) Four Roses Bourbon, Hard Ginger Ale and apple juice to glass. Gently stir to combine.
* For a lower alcohol content you can swap hard ginger ale for regular ginger ale.
Fall is all about sitting by bonfires, staying warm while watching a football game and enjoying life with the windows open. Whatever fall plans you may have the Four Roses Double Bourbon Apple Pie Ale is sure to be a hit and have you enjoying all of your fall fun.
