Unwind With These Holiday Drinks

Holiday Drink Recipes
Spiced Appletini

The holidays can be lots of fun, but there are times when things can get too busy and you just need a moment to yourself or with a few close friends. These signature cocktails are great for unwinding yet have a touch of holiday flare. Take a break from the hustle and bustle and sip on one of these!

Spiced Appletini
In a shaker with ice, add:
1½ ounces Woodford Reserve bourbon
3 ounces apple cider
1 clove
Squeeze of lemon
Dash of cinnamon
Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a slice of red apple

Note: The spiced appletini garnish looks great in a martini glass. Simply slice an apple into a small round and sprinkle top with cinnamon. Float on top of drink.
