Spritz it up! Gin adds some quick personality to cider…with a twist. It’s the perfect conversation starter. Local sparkling apple cider is available all across Canada. Use one that is crisp and not too sweet.
4 oz Quebec or Canadian gin
1 bottle pink sparkling apple cider, about 350 mL
4 slices seasonal apple
4 cinnamon sticks
In a cocktail shaker, stir together gin, cider and some ice. Strain into 4 glasses. In each glass, add a splash of soda and garnish with 1 apple slice and 1 cinnamon stick.
TIP Can be served with or without ice. If serving with ice, strain into glasses filled with fresh ice.
