I'm clearly a sucker for seasonal anything, and cocktails are by no means an exception. In fact, I love festive drinks of any kind, whether it's gingerbread lattes or something a little merrier. I adapted this cocktail from an existing recipe, making it just a little sweeter and cozier with a touch of brown sugar, and subbing cider for hard-to-find unfiltered apple juice. I can't say I'm a lover of bourbon, but it was quite nice in this holiday treat.
1/2 cup apple cider, or unfiltered apple juice
1/2 cup ginger ale
1/4 cup decent bourbon
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar to taste
Shake with ice, and serve with apple slice garnish.
