Somewhere between spiked cider and juicy sangria, this fall cocktail's flavor perfectly captures the essence of the season. The delicious concoction was created by Minibar co-founders Lindsey Andrews and Lara Crystal especially for guests looking for a lighter cocktail to sip all day that doesn't compromise on flavor. The low alcohol content means it's an ideal meal drink, but also works as an after-dinner treat alongside homemade apple pie.
1 cup quartered green and red apples, thinly sliced
1 naval orange, quartered and thinly sliced
1 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 ounces Calvados
22-ounce bottle hard cider
Pinch of cinnamon
Combine apples, orange, lemon juice, apple juice, and Calvados in a pitcher with ice.
Steep for 15 minutes.
Add hard cider in the last minute, top with pinch of cinnamon, and serve.
