What’s not to love about a cocktail that’s reminiscent of a classic crowd-pleaser?
With Pixie Spiced Rum and a few simple ingredients perfect for celebrating the season, not only is this recipe super tasty, making it is easy as pie!
2oz Local Choice Pixie Spiced Rum
3-4oz Apple Cider
1/2tsp Apple pie spice
For the rim and garnish (optional):
Caramel (or 1 cup sugar, 3/4 cream, and 2 tbsp butter if you want to make your own)
This can also be served chilled instead of warmed and is just as tasty. Enjoy!
If you want to make your own caramel, here is a recipe:
Add 1 cup of granulated sugar to a medium saucepan (shake into an even layer), and then add 1/3 cup of water to fully moisten the sugar
Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook for a few minutes until the sugar dissolves and turns clear. Be sure to stir or swirl the pan as you go so the sugar doesn’t burn.
Then, raise the heat to medium high and cook until the caramel is an amber color (keep swirling and take care not to burn the mixture)
Turn the heat off and immediately add ¾ cup of heavy cream.
Add 2 tbsp of butter and stir everything together until the caramel smooths out. If desired, add vanilla extract, or a splash of your favorite bourbon, and a teaspoon of salt.
You can make this recipe in advance, and once cooled to room temp, you can store it tightly covered for up to 2 weeks in the fridge
