Rye Cider

This spicy-sweet seasonal quaff is equally awesome on sunny afternoons and cool evenings.


  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 ounces sweet hard cider such as Bantam Cider Wunderkind
  • 1 ½ ounces Brown Butter–Washed Rye
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters


  • On a small plate or in a shallow bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon. Rim a chilled double old fashioned glass with cinnamon-sugar blend. Fill glass with ice. Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add cider, rye, and bitters, and stir gently. Strain into glass.
