I don’t have a name for it, but it’s a variation on the Stone Fence, an old drink usually made with cider and applejack. Mine’s less sweet, a little more balanced, and tastes like delicious autumn. It also works just as well hot as it does over ice. As you can see below, I’m quite precise with my measurements. (Hey, I never claimed to be Jacob Grier.) Here’s how it’s done:
5 jiggers apple cider.
2 jiggers bourbon (I prefer Bulleit for this particular dink).
1 squeeze lemon.
Dash of orange bitters.
Mix all ingredients. Pour over ice in a tumbler, or microwave for two minutes in your favorite mug. Dust with cinnamon just before drinking.
