You’re going to want to keep this cocktail recipe in your arsenal this season because it’s a sure-fire holiday hit, regardless of what you’re celebrating.
Crown Royal Vanilla is one of the newest additions to the Crown Royal family—it has a smooth, light whisky finish with flavorful notes of creamy vanilla.
When met with the sweet and comforting flavors of apple cider, a couple dashes of pimento bitters and a little lemon juice, you get a cocktail that truly feels richly, luxuriously royal.
1 ½ Crown Royal Vanilla Whisky
3 oz. Apple cider
2 dashes Dale DeGroff’s Pimento Aromatic Bitters
Juice of one lemon wedge
Crab apple (cored), cinnamon bark and mint sprig for garnish
Build drink over ice in a tall glass and stir. Core a small crab apple and put the cinnamon bark and mint sprig in the core for garnish.
