Thirsty Thursday: Cider Smash

This is a perfect autumn cocktail. When I first read the ingredients, I really wasn’t too sure about them going together all that well, but since it was a Martha recipe, I decided to just go for it. When has Martha ever been wrong?

It’s a tiny bit sweet, with a nice and crispy, tanginess, kind of like a granny smith apple. If you want to get really wild and crazy, you could sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top, but let’s not get too carried away here.

Cider Smash (from

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 4 ounces chilled sparkling apple cider
  • Thin apple slice
Pour bourbon and lemon juice into a tall glass. Top with apple cider. Garnish with apple slice.
