Real maple syrup, bourbon, and apple cider come together to make a 10/10 Fall cocktail: the Maple Bourbon Moscow Mule.
I think that bourbon is wonderful year round. Classic Old Fashioneds, anyone?
But it’s especially good once the weather starts to cool down a bit. Bourbon is smooth and warming, and really complements classic Fall ingredients like apple cider and maple.
Fortunately for me (and you!), I was recently gifted a bottle of smoked maple bourbon. Its sweet maple flavor inspired these Maple Bourbon Moscow Mules.

- Mexican Moscow Mule
- 1.5 oz smoked maple bourbon, see notes
- .75 oz real maple syrup
- 3 oz apple cider
- 3 oz ginger beer
- 1/2 lime, juiced
Combine all ingredients in a copper mug over ice.
Notes: I used Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon Whiskey. You can use another (non-maple) bourbon if that's all you have on hand. The maple flavor just won't be quite as pronounced.
