Apple Butter Cocktail by How Sweet Eats

  • orange wedges for the glass
  • 1/2 cinnamon + 1 tablespoon sugar for the rim
  • 3 tablespoons apple butter
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 4 to 6 ounces chilled ginger ale or ginger beer
  • fresh figs for garnish
  1. Rim your glass with a wedge of citrus. I like orange but lemon or lime work too! Stir together the cinnamon and sugar on a plate. Dip the rim in the cinnamon sugar.
  2. Fill a shaker glass with ice. Add the apple butter, bourbon and a pinch of cinnamon. Shake well for 30 seconds. Pour the mixture into the glass. Fill the glass with ginger ale or ginger beer and serve!
