This is a delicious winter cocktail for the cold evenings based on apple cider, bourbon and amaretto. Extra fun: with a slice of orange brûlée on top, it becomes a picture too.
For 2 cocktails:
For the orange brûlée:
- 2 thin slices of orange
- 2 teaspoons of sugar
For the sugar rim:
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
For the winter cocktail:
- 360 ml apple cider
- 120 ml of orange juice
- 90 ml bourbon
- 45 ml amaretto
- 4 to 6 drops of angostura bitters
- Some ice cubes
This is how you make this winter cocktail
First make the orange brûlée. To do this, sprinkle the orange slices with the sugar. Place them on the sugar side in a skillet over medium heat.
After a few minutes you will see that the sugar around it starts to bubble and turns brown. Once the oranges start to caramelize, remove them from the pan.
For the sugar rim, mix the sugar with the cinnamon and salt and place on a plate. Dampen the rim of each glass with some orange juice or cider (you should still have some juice on your cutting board that you just sliced the orange on, you can use that too). Then roll the glasses with the edges through the sugar mixture.
Mix the remaining ingredients for the winter cocktail in a cocktail shaker, including the ice. Shake well and then divide it over the glasses. Place a slice of caramelized orange on each glass.
