Recipe: Bourbon and Smoked Cider

Rank: Easy

Time execution: 35 min

Can be served for: 10 to 12 cocktails


  • 3 cups sugar

  • 3 cups water

  • 6 apples, any kind

  • One 750-milliliter bottle Kentucky bourbon

  • 9 ounces fresh lemon juice

  • Handful of sage leaves


  1. For the apple cider syrup: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water. Bring to a simmer and stir to dissolve the sugar. Turn off heat and set syrup aside.

  2. Heat a grill to high heat. Core and cut the apples into 2/3-inch-thick slices on the equator (leave skin on). Grill apples 4 for 5 minutes on each side. Place apples in a high-speed blender with the syrup. Blend until smooth. Strain and set aside. (Apple cider syrup will last in the refrigerator for up to 24 days).

  3. For the cocktail: Fill a large pitcher with ice. Add the bourbon, lemon juice and 9 ounces of the apple cider syrup. Stir and pour into tall Collins glasses filled with ice. Garnish each drink with a sage leaf.
