Hard Apple and Spice Cider Cocktail


We’re super excited about Thanksgiving and gathering with friends and family this year! We wanted to create an easy cocktail that not only has festive fall flavors, but is also light and refreshing. We mixed up a delicious Hard Apple and Spice Cider Cocktail that’s perfect for serving with dinner or just as a fall libation. It’s such a light, refreshing cocktail and has flavors of lemon, ginger, cinnamon and apple. This drink is so delicious and easy to make!! We served them in large, chilled and customized mason jars to give them a rustic touch! We used some of Shutterfly holiday home décor items to serve the drinks and to fully ring in all the holiday feel! Everything was easy to order and came out great!

These jars are so fun to drink from. I love the oversized feel and the charm they add to the table. You can get each mug etched with a charming saying or even your guests’ names, which can turn into a simple holiday gift for them to take home! So it works as a name/placesetting, drink marker and gift! I love that idea!!

We’re kind of monogram crazy in our house, so we were all about the marble and wood serving board with the P etched in the wood. It’s a clean, pretty way to serve up appetizers or garnishes.

And because I’m such a make-ahead type person, we created this cocktail so you can mix it up and store it in this gorgeous, stainless steel, copper-colored growler until you’re ready to serve. We etched our growler with our signature slogan “Stay Charming” to add a little personal charm!! Enjoy and happy fall!! Hard Apple and Spice Cider Cocktail
