Stay Gold Cider
Stay Gold Cider
Makes one cocktail
Start to finish: 5 minutes


One 1-inch strip orange zest

½ cup organic apple cider

1 shot bourbon 

1 teaspoon maple syrup

2 pinches cayenne pepper

2 pinches cinnamon (Ceylon cinnamon is preferable)


1. Twist the orange zest strip over the glass a few times to release the oils. Rub the zest around the rim of the glass, then place the strip inside with a few ice cubes.

2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the cider, bourbon, maple syrup, cinnamon and cayenne. Shake vigorously to combine.

3. Pour into the prepared glass and serve immediately.

Note: You can swap the bourbon for smoky mezcal, or, for a non-alcoholic version, ⅓ cup kombucha.
