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!

How To Make A Hard Spiced Apple Cider Cocktail – Step By Step

  • Add a mixture of cinnamon and sugar with a little chili onto the wet rims of 2 chilled mugs.
  • Add all of the ingredients into a large shaker and mix it up with lots of ice. Don’t shake it but just mix.
  • Pour into your cinnamon/sugar rimmed chilled mugs and enjoy.

How To Serve Your Spiced Apple Cider Cocktails

Serve the cocktail in an oversized mug for fun! You can even get them 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/place setting, 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.

Hard Spiced Apple Cider Cocktails – A Great Make Ahead Cocktail

The apple cider cocktail mix is a cinch to whip up, no chopping, muddling or extravagant mixology needed – less 5 mins prep!

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!!
