    • 2/3 c cup apple cider (Simply Apple is a good one if you cannot locate actual pressed cider)
    • 1 tbsp lime juice
    • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
    • 1 tsp brown sugar
    • 1 pinch cinnamon (about 1/4 tsp)
    • top up with ginger beer or ginger ale
    • sliced apple for garnish (optional)
    • cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)


    • Fill a copper mug or cocktail shaker or tall glass with ice
    • Pour 1-2 oz vodka.
    • Add 1 tbsp fresh lime juice.
    • Sprinkle a pinch of brown sugar and pinch of cinnamon then stir to combine.
