Autumn’s Ambrosia Cocktail

This apple-flavored cocktail is the perfect fall tipple
Autumn Ambrosia


As summer ends and autumn rolls in, it's time to stop crafting cocktails with peaches and berries and start using our favorite fall fruit: apples!

This recipe is courtesy of mixologist Mcson Salicetti at Crimson & Rye.


  • 1 1/2 Ounce reposado tequila, preferably Blue Nectar Reposado Extra Blend
  • 3/4 Ounces lemon juice
  • 1/2 Ounce black peppercorn-honey syrup
  • 1/4 Ounce fresh apple juice
  • 1/4 Ounce sherry
  • Apple cider
  • 2 dashes barrel-aged bitters
  • Cinnamon stick, to garnish
  • 3 black peppercorns


Pour the tequila, lemon juice, syrup, apple juice, and sherry into a cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice, top with apple cider, and bitters. Top with a cinnamon stick and black peppercorns.
