Apple Ginger Whiskey

It is almost Friday and that means it’s time for another Happy Hour! I have so much fun with these drinks. It’s almost OFFICIALLY Fall y’all and I am so excited! I love the cooler weather, the changing of the leaves and all of the Fall spices. One of my favorite Fall flavors has got to be apple cider, so I decided to make a little drinky-drink using it! With just 3 ingredients, the Apple Ginger Whiskey is sure to be a Fall favorite in your household too! Try it today!

Apple Ginger Whiskey 

  • Jack Daniel’s or your favorite whiskey or bourbon
  • Schweppes Ginger Ale (or ginger beer for a more gingery bite)
  • Apple Cider


I used a 2:2:1 ratio so you can make it by the glass or pitcher. Thinly sliced apples make a beautiful garnish, if desired. I used a mandoline slicer to keep them thin and beautiful. I love the little star that the core makes when you slice them like this!


Simply fill your glass with ice and add 1 shot of Jack, 2 shots of apple cider, and 2 shots of ginger ale. Stir and garnish. The sweetness of the apple cider and bubbly ginger ale pair perfectly with the smoothness of the Jack Daniel’s.


It’s a great drink for warming up at the end of the day around a bonfire or just enjoying with friends! I hope you have a chance to try it this weekend! I bet it would be amazing as a hot drink as well, just leave out the ginger ale!
