Spike the Kiddie Table (Sparkling Cider Rum Cocktail)

While Sparkling Cider is usually relegated to the kids or teetotalers clinking their glasses at midnight, this take on a classic cocktail will give you more options and let those that want something a little bubbly and light, yet alcoholic on New Year’s Eve, to enjoy. The cocktail is simple enough with 1.5 parts rum, 3/4 part of cider, 1/2 part of lemon juice and one part sparkling apple juice. Pour together and serve. Star anise can be added to give it that holiday magic and a bit of your own star falling on the holiday.

Key Takeaways:

  • The main ingredients for this cocktail are apple cider, lemon, spirit, and fizz.
  • This cocktail is adjustable to your taste, as you can change the choice of alcohol to fit your taste (i.e., sweet, dry, etc.)
  • Make sure to serve this cocktail cold, by chilling it ahead of time and adding ice to the cocktail shaker.

“This festive drink, created by bartender A. Minetta Gould of Saint Ellie in Denver, gets a double dose of apple thanks to fresh cider (from the orchard, farmers market, or refrigerator aisle) and fizzy sparkling cider, like Martinelli’s.”
