Let’s face it: plain vodka is the worst. I don’t mean to be a hater, but even when masked with juice or soda, it makes everything taste like, well, vodka. Until now! We’ve got the greatest (and easiest) solution for turning this un-spirited spirit into the greatest mixer of all time.
In a mere 24 hours, you can transform your boring booze into a lit, autumnal treat that friends and family will love. And making it couldn’t be simpler. Add sliced apples, lemons, and two cinnamon sticks to a large mason jar. Top with vodka, shake it up, and refrigerate for a day — this helps everything infuse properly.
Then comes the fun part: drinking it! Make a festive fall shooter by rimming a shot glass in cinnamon sugar, filling it with your apple pie vodka, and topping with whipped cream.
If shot’s aren’t your thing, we’ve created two seasonal twists on classic cocktails that’ll spice up any party. To make a mimosa, add one part apple pie vodka, two parts champagne, and a splash of apple cider to a champagne glass. For our take on a mule, pour two parts apple pie vodka and three parts spicy ginger beer over ice and garnish with a lemon wedge.
You could even spike your homemade apple pie with a bit of this magical liquid. Game. Changed.
