Spiced Bourbon Cider Sour

Let's add some Fall flavors to a whiskey sour to make this a cozy, sweater weather drink.

I see your pumpkin spice and apple spice and raise you some gingerbread spice syrup to make this, and all your Fall and Holiday drinks sing with sugar plum fairy deliciousness.

I've loved Torani's gingerbread syrup ever since a bartender friend let me taste the holiday kid's milk shakes at Bubba Gump's up at universal City Walk on a Fall, chilly evening.

One taste and I said... "Throw some bourbon in there for me. His eyes sparkled and made a tiny taster shake for us all at the bar. Big grins all around.

Prep Time: 5 min


2 oz whiskey or bourbon (Jack, Bulleit, Knob Creek)

1 oz Torani Gingerbread syrup

1 oz fresh lemon juice 4 oz fresh apple cider

Garnish: gingerbread syrup, cane sugar, apple slice


  • Combine all ingredients (except garnishes) in a mixing glass or cobbler shaker

  • shake or stir to combine for 30 seconds

  • garnish your rocks glass with a sugar rim and fill with ice

  • strain into your rocks glass, garnish with fresh apple slice

Enjoy and get cozy.

Have never heard of gingerbread syrup. Won't be surprised if I can't find it around here. And I'll be using Woodford Reserve (!
