Fall fun: Cider Cocktail


Recipe: Cider Cocktail

  • 1/2 oz Brandy
  • 2 Ice Cubes
  • 6 oz Dry Sparkling Hard Apple Cider – Honesty Box (NZ), Strongbow (UK), or  Big Rock (Cdn) are good choices.
  • 1″ Twist of lime (just the outer skin)
  • Dash Orange Bitters (Optional)


  1. In a champagne flute add the ingredients in order shown.
  2. Stir gently
  3. Enjoy


Doesn’t get much simpler. The original recipe calls for expensive Calvados. This version uses less expensive brandy (Remi), with the lime twist and orange bitters adding a subtle hint of fruit in the mix.
