We started the week with apple cider doughnuts so I thought this cocktail would be perfect for the weekend. A Manhattan with a splash of apple, yes! Only thing I would change is to substitute fresh apple cider for apple juice. My brother, his wife, and an old friend are coming into town this weekend to celebrate my birthday, get pumpkins, more cider, and eat cake. I can't wait to sip on the big apple, along with this, as we watch scary movies and welcome in October!
