Thanksgiving Cocktail: Bourbon Apple Cobbler

Thanksgiving is coming and you’re probably looking for a great fall cocktail before the last of the apple cider disappears from store shelves. Fear not, because Shanna invented a tasty cocktail that’s filled with autumnal goodness.

First off, you’re going to want to make a small jar of cinnamon simple syrup – if you start now (with less than a week to go until Thanksgiving) it should be ready to use in about 5-6 days. Use our instructions for making your own simple syrup, making enough for your purposes and pour into a mason jar with 4-6 cinnamon sticks. Let it chill in the fridge until it gets a little darker and taste nicely of cinnamon. This, by itself, is delicious.

Whether you’re making for a crowd or yourself, you’ll want a shaker to fill with:

2 parts bourbon

1 part cinnamon simple syrup

1 part apple cider

Shake and pour into a rocks glass over ice and top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a wedge of apple (I like to pour lemon juice over pre-sliced apples, which lends to the flavor combinations nicely). Great for a party where you have some good cheeses or a slice of Shanna’s famous Hobo Trap Apple Pie.

It's called that because it's ugly, but tasty - an' hobos don't care none about pretty.

Why is it called a cobbler? Cobblers are cocktails that historically have all of the following: alcohol (of course), sugar and fruit. Also, it just sounds darling.
