Hard Cider Cocktails

Last night I made two cocktails with DeMunck’s Hard Cider.

The first was a recipe I found online here through Liquor.com’s DrinkWire.

The article was a list of cider cocktails to make this fall, curated by Chilled Magazine. This first drink is their recipe and also their picture:

Orchard Flowers
Ingredients:
•1/2 oz. Dry Gin (I used Boodles)
•1/2 oz. Elderflower Liqueur
•Splash Lime Juice
•3 oz. Dry Cider (I used DeMunck’s)

Preparation
Shake gin, elderflower liqueur and lime juice over ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with cider. Garnish with a lime wedge.

The drink was good. Sort of like a French 75 in a way, swapping lemon for lime and using hard cider in place of champagne (plus the addition of elderflower liqueur). With that drink in mind, I came up with this next drink using whiskey, dark rum, bitters and ginger liqueur:
