Almost no one is going to complain if you add a little whiskey to your apple pie recipe, and we don't think anyone will have a problem with turning your whiskey into an apple pie. This delightful apple pie whiskey cocktail puts apple pie flavor front and center for a drink that's perfect for tailgating, a crisp Halloween evening or to celebrate a successful trip to your local apple orchard.

Start with an ounce of cinnamon whiskey from your favorite distillery, add an ounce of vanilla vodka and four ounces of apple cider. Pour the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake for 15 seconds. Pour the liquid over ice in a mason jar or glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick. These are so fast and easy to make that you can make them for a group in no time flat.

Cinnamon whiskey is trending as a favorite cocktail ingredient; this apple pie whiskey uses it for a spicy-sweet burn to balance the apple flavor in the cider. If you want to add a bit more sweetness, you can use brown sugar on the rim of the glass.

Apple Pie Whiskey Cocktail 

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 0 minutes



  • 1 oz cinnamon whiskey
  • 1 oz vanilla vodka
  • 4 oz apple cider
  • cinnamon sticks to garnish


In a cocktail shaker filled with ice combine the whiskey, vodka, and apple cider. Shake for 15 seconds. Pour into an iced glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.


We like to use fresh apple cider or unfiltered apple cider for the biggest punch of apple. We like the look of the cinnamon sticks for garnish, but you can use a pinch of cinnamon on top of the drink as a garnish as well.

Perfect Pairing

Serve this Apple Pie Whiskey Cocktail with a piece of Peanut Brittle.
