Autumn is the perfect time of year to stroll through markets, sample ciders and baked goods, and (in my case) dream up delicious cocktail recipes. If you’re looking for a classic cocktail with a seasonal twist, look no further than the Apple Butter Old Fashioned!  This refreshing drink is packed with flavor, and it’s a great choice for your fall soirées.

I love the Apple Butter Old Fashioned because it is full of delicious, comforting flavors. There’s a hint of tartness from the apple cider that’s balanced by the sweetness of apple butter and bourbon. The sugared rim adds a special touch, while subtle cinnamon and fresh apple slices give it that extra oomph. Truly, this cocktail is everything I could ever want in an old fashioned—made even better with delicious fall flavors. Let me show you how to mix one up!
