It might seem odd to add maple syrup to a cocktail, but seriously, try it! The syrup sinks to the bottom, so when you drink with a (environmentally responsible) straw you get a delicious sweet taste which nicely complements all the tartness of the apple. Perfect.

And this fall we have developed an obsession with cinnamon sticks as a garnish. Let the cinnamon soak in the cocktail while drinking and it will release spice in to the drink, changing the flavour as you go. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try lighting the end of the stick until it is smouldering – it will give another dimension by adding a smokey flavour.

Using an apple corer to make apple rings by Champagne and Sugarplums

We use an apple corer to make the ring garnish. If you don’t have one, no worries! You can cut a ring using a knife – or skip the rings and add thin cut apple slices instead. The taste of fresh apple is more important than the shape. 🙂

Finish by adding a cinnamon stick garnish. Let the cinnamon sit in the cocktail, the flavour will diffuse into the drink for a fabulous spicy flavour.
