This Apple Pie Cocktail is a great way to welcome guests to your home for the holidays. Make a pitcher for easy refills!
When entertaining, and especially during the holidays, I love to have a pitcher of drinks ready for guests. The convenience factor paired with a signature cocktail is perfect for the hostess who has so many things to think about.
This apple pie cocktail is so delicious and tastes just like the season!
The color and flavors make this pitcher of cocktails an excellent choice to serve at Thanksgiving while the rest of the dinner is cooking. Just mix up a big batch in a container, and set up a tray with glasses ready to be filled.
Add a pretty garnish that hints at the flavors inside. I like to serve it with an apple slice and a cinnamon stick.
I encourage the convenience of serving this in a pitcher but you could also mix up individual drinks if you like. Use 1 ounce rum, 1/2 ounce schnapps, and 3 ounces juice. Combine over ice and enjoy.
HOSTESS TIP: Make a pitcher of cocktails for guests to serve them selves and have it ready to pour when they arrive.
You’ll notice this recipe calls for regular apple juice and not apple cider. This keeps it a little lighter and gives you a clear drink rather than an opaque one.
Choose a delicious cheesy appetizer to accompany the drink, like cheddar cheese crisps or sausage cheese balls. The sweet and salty combo are great together, plus cheese and apple are classic pairings.
