CRANBERRY APPLE CIDER COCKTAIL (Adapted from jelly toast blog)

It’s officially fall now, so I am going with a drink that is all about fall – apple cider! Add some OJ, vodka and cranberry and you’ve got something special! The recipe below is for 1 drink – I’ll be multiplying the amounts to make 8 (and will bring more and make additional batches as needed).

1 oz orange juice (fresh squeezed, strained) – (8 oz or 1 cup for my tailgate) 2 oz cranberry juice (16 oz or 2 cups for me) 1 oz vodka (8 oz or 1 cup for me) 1 btl hard cider (I’ll have 3 – 6 packs on hand for my expected group of 16 tailgaters!) apple slice (optional, for garnish)

Fill glass and cocktail shaker with ice. Add cranberry juice, orange juice and vodka to the cocktail shaker and shake until chilled. Strain into ice filled glass. Top off the glass with the hard cider and garnish with apple slice, if desired. Sip and enjoy!
