Ginger Apple Bourbon

As you may know from my post yesterday, I have apple cider in my possession and I’m not afraid to use it.  My Friday cocktail this week, Ginger Apple Bourbon, features…you guessed it…apple cider.  Maybe I shouldn’t admit this, but when I tried this cocktail for the first time, I drank it down.  I mean, like water.  Yikes!  This cocktail was adapted from a drink I saw on this blog a few weeks ago.  I was running suspiciously low on bourbon (I wonder who drank it all? ;)) so I measured out what I had left – 1/2 cup – and followed the 2:2:1 ratio, mixing it with 1 cup apple cider and 1 cup ginger ale.  Sometimes it’s hard to find a nice seasonal cocktail in the fall so this is one to remember.  Ginger.  Apple.  Bourbon.  ‘Nuff said.

The ingredients:

Mix together apple cider, ginger ale and bourbon in a 2:2:1 ratio and serve over ice.

Vodka Ginger Lemonade

When I made this cocktail from Cottage Living on one of this summer’s first hot days, I was so happy with it I poured another icy glass and walked it over to my friend’s house for her to try.  The fresh lemon juice and simple syrup provides a refreshment that you just can’t get from powdered mix or concentrated lemonade.  The ground ginger adds a pleasant twist just be careful and maybe go a little shy of two full teaspoons otherwise it can overpower the drink.  The sparkling water also adds a nice fizzy touch.
