A seasonal spin on the classic old fashioned, made with bourbon, apple cider, maple syrup and rosemary. Recipe below.

Our recent road trip had a definite autumnal feel, everywhere we traveled. Crisp, chilly mornings followed by warm, sunny afternoons with deep blue fall skies. Followed later by rainy, misty gray weather the last two days on the road.

We didn’t see the blaze of color we’d been hoping for, especially along the Skyline Drive in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park. We were too early for some of the changing colors, and the year’s drought limited the changes we did see to mostly yellows and browns. Still, it was a glorious time to be driving through this beautiful part of the world. And yes, we did hike a tiny piece of the Appalachian Trail.

This cocktail is built on autumnal and outdoorsy flavors that evoke the changing season. Apple cider, rosemary and maple syrup team up with bourbon to create the base. Lemon juice adds a needed bright note, and a few dashes of bitters echo the bittersweetness of fall.

Apple Cider Old Fashioned
Makes 1 generous cocktail

fresh rosemary
2 ounces bourbon (we’re liking Town Branch these days)
2 ounces fresh apple cider
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce maple syrup
3 dashes angostura bitters
apple slice for garnish (optional)

Muddle a sprig of rosemary and the bourbon in a cocktail shaker. Add cider, lemon juice, syrup, bitters and some ice, and shake to combine and chill. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Or a cool vintage coupe that probably once was used to serve sherbet, and that you picked up at an antique mall in South Charleston, West Virginia. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and apple slice. Serve.
