It’s Friday, so time for happy hour and Cider Cocktails! Hope you enjoy these 17 best cider cocktail recipes that are perfect for fall! I thought I’d update an old Friday Fab 5 with a lot of easy cider cocktail recipes instead. Here’s a variety of easy cider cocktail recipes including some of my own, and some from blogger friends and others.
There are many ways to make a great fall cocktail with apple cider. Besides cider, you can also add a variety of apple liqueurs, or something else like spiced run, bourbon, or even tequila! Add some apple slices, cinnamon, or other spices or even rim the glass with cinnamon sugar for a fun treat.
Check out all the cider cocktails below along with a brief description of some of the main ingredients.
