This tangy Apple Cider Fizz cocktail recipe is a great way to use up the extra fresh apple cider you bought when you were on that fun apple-picking weekend trip. The drink is sweet (but not too cloyingly sweet) and refreshing, and a low alcohol beverage (vermouth only) to enjoy on a crisp autumn evening. This recipe is easy to make in batches, so it’s a sweet option for serving to friends and family as a pre-Thanksgiving dinner drink.Print
3 oz. Sweet vermouth
3 oz. Apple cider
2 Teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 oz. Fresh squeezed lemon juice
8 oz. Club soda
Simple syrup for garnish
Add a couple of tablespoons of the Ruby Red sugar to a shallow bowl. Brush the rims of your cocktail glasses with the simple syrup and dip them into the sugar. Set aside.
Add the brown sugar to a cocktail mixing glass, then pour in the lemon juice. Muddle until the sugar is dissolved. Add ice to the mixing glass, then pour in the vermouth and apple cider. Stir gently, then slowly add the soda water. Stir gently again, fill the prepared glasses and serve.
