amaretto apple cider

I like to make cocktails based on ingredients I already have, it forces me to get creative and try new things. This week we had apple cider so I decided to work with that and took to the internet to find some recipes that incorporated it. I didn't have to think twice when I spotted this recipe for an apple cider cocktail with amaretto and rum. While the recipe called for a cinnamon and sugar rim, I didn't feel it was quite necessary, this drink is sweet enough of it's own and as nice as a sugar rim sounds I always find them to be too messy.

AMARETTO APPLE CIDER
2.5 ounces apple cider
1 ounce amaretto
1 ounce spiced rum
a cinnamon stick for garnish

In a shaker or glass, add apple cider, amaretto, and rum. Stir, pour over ice, and enjoy!
