Residents of Sacramento know that every autumn, it’s that time again to drive up the road to Apple Hill and visit all the merchants and sample their goods. I always buy a Dutch Apple Pie, grab the best apple fritters known to man over at High Hill, and pick up some handcrafted items from a booth or two. It dawned on me this year that the only thing missing was a mixed drink that tastes just like homemade apple pie. After hours of scouring the Web and experimenting with different formulas, I settled on an Apple Pie Cocktail recipe that lives up to the hype.

The days are getting colder, perhaps it’s time to grab something that will warm your bones. If that’s what you’ve been thinking, then let me introduce you to the Hot Apple Pie Shot. This drink will remind you of the homemade pie your grandmother used to make, while delivering a powerful kick of Everclear. This drink is different from many others; the preparation goes on in the kitchen instead of behind the bar.
Recently, I was scouring the Internet for recipes for Apple Pie Cocktail, or at least something similar. There turned out to be a ton of drink recipes that were nothing at all alike. Before I finally came up with a concoction that satisfied my original quest, I started experimenting with some of the liquors and mixers I had compiled into a list of potential ingredients. What I accidentally came up with is a brand new drink that I am now dubbing the Sacramento Cider. This mixed drink tastes just like an alcoholic version of mulled cider, and I’m excited to share our Sacramento Cider recipe with you today.
