This festive take on the classic whiskey sour cocktail is perfect for the fall season with the addition of spiked apple cider and a homemade cinnamon simple syrup. This tangy whiskey beverage creatively blends flavors of the season to make an aromatic drink that is ideal to enjoy during the autumnal months.

Whiskey sours are traditionally made with whiskey, lemon or lime juice, sugar and sometimes frothed egg whites. This recipe transitions the drink for fall witht he addition of a homemade cinnamon simple syrup made from granulated sugar, a cinnamon stick and water. The cocktail is then made from Bourbon, fresh apple cider, lemon juice, the homemade cinnamon syrup and orange bitters. The end result is a cocktail that perfectly blends citrus and spiced flavors.
