Apple Ginger Bourbon Fizz
Apple butter and ginger beer mingle with bourbon to create a wicked good cocktail.
Day drinking. Seriously, let’s make it a thing–starting with this cocktail.
I have yet another fall-inspired cocktail for you. You know, because one just isn’t enough.
This apple ginger bourbon fizz is spiked with local apple butter from Weber’s Cider Mill. I normally like to spoon the the velvety butter right into my mouth, but I figured I could spare a smidge for my cocktail shaker.
I’m so happy I did, because this cocktail rocks my world.
I was recently introduced to Bulleit Bourbon. It’s high dollar bourbon at a reasonable price, and it is good! I feel like I’m rolling high class in a pimped-out Caddy when I’m sipping on my juice.
This cocktail is extremely easy to make. Add ice, apple butter, and bourbon to a cocktail shaker. Give the mixture a few good shakes. Pour over ice and top with ginger beer and a lime wedge.
Sip until your heart’s content.
Ginger beer is unbelievably delicious when it’s paired with bourbon. You get the oaky, vanilla flavor from the bourbon and the zesty fizz from the ginger beer. Honestly, it’s all good when bourbon is involved.

I’ve has a few days that could use some day drinking lately. Especially when this drink is so easy to make!
This really is easy to whip up.
Apple butter in a drink?? Just stop it. I think I’m going to have to make a mocktail version of this Jennie!!
Mmm, a mocktail would be perfect.
Bulleit is my go-to bourbon and rye. I absolutely love their stuff. This cocktail is awesome and I can see some great day drinking happening with this cocktail.
I just picked up a bottle of their rye. It’s so good! I love adding it to baked goods.
Oooo I need to make this at thanksgiving! My father in law is a hugeee bourbon fan (and the hubs is too!). It sounds like an awesome drink!
Go team bourbon!
This sounds like a perfect fall cocktail! Sounds delicious

Thanks, Uru! It’s all about the fizz in my house.
mmmmmmmmmmm apple butteeeeeerrrrr! I love the idea of making a cocktail with apple butter and bourbon! PLUS all things ginger beer really tickle me pink, so this cocktail is making my mouth water! Can I spoon-feed myself apple butter while sipping on this cocktail? Don’t mind if I do! Happy Friday!
Spoon feed away, my friend. It’s the only way to roll, really. Yes, ginger is the best. I’m addicted to Reed’s Ginger Beer–so much ginger flavor.
This could easily be my very favorite fall drink! Gorgeous!
I’m with Elizabeth, I’m dying over these photos!! Totally gorgeous! And I love that you added Apple butter to a cocktail. You genius you ;)

I stuffed my backpack with the necessary cocktail gear. Do you think Southwest will let on the plane if I offer them a cocktail ;)
