How to Make a Washington Apple Cocktail
Making cocktails is really simple to do and this recipe can be done in four easy steps. Follow the steps below for a strong drink you just need to have.
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
You can garnish this with a sugary rim, fruit or even cinnamon sticks. This would also be a great addition to sangria, just use it in place of the booze and juice.
