  • 2 ounces apple cider
  • 2 ounces Rye
  • 1 dash bitters
  • 1 slice apple for garnish

  • 1 cup ice


  • To a cocktail mixer, add half the ice; fill a rocks glass with remaining ice.
  • To the mixer, add the rye, apple cider, and bitters.
  • Stir for about 20 seconds to incorporate the ingredients and adequately chill the drink.
  • Strain and pour into the ice-filled rocks glass.
  • Garnish with an apple slice and cherries. Serve immediately.


  • If you prefer your drink to be sweeter, add a sugar cube to the rocks glass, add the bitters to soften the cube, and muddle.
  • If you don't have rye, you can also use bourbon.
