There are a few things as satisfying as those classic fall fragrances (we see you, pumpkin spice latte lovers!), and an Apple Butter Old Fashioned cocktail is packed with the warm and spicy flavors synonymous with cozy apple pies. Made with real apple butter (just like mama used to make), this fall Old Fashioned drink is perfect for an indulgent Thanksgiving feast with your nearest and dearest.
How to make an Apple Butter Old Fashioned cocktail
To make a proper apple butter cocktail, you have to use the best ingredients you can get your hands on. In fact, this should always be the rule when making any cocktail. Quality ingredients result in quality cocktails, and that’s what we’re all about!
We chose Wild Turkey Bourbon Whiskey for its bold taste, and we suggest making your own apple butter at home—it will be absolutely worth the extra effort. Contrary to what the name suggests, apple butter does not contain any butter. It’s basically just a fancy name for apples that have been pureed, spiced and cooked down to give them a butter-like texture.
It’s sweet and rich in flavor and can be stored in your fridge for a couple of weeks. You can use your jar of homemade Apple Butter for more than just your drink. Spread it on toast, make it part of a cheese platter, add it to your oatmeal, dollop it onto pancakes or use it as a glaze on meat. Absolutely delicious!
