Mix the ingredients in a highball glass or mug. Stir with the cinnamon stick, garnish with apple.
RATING: 3 stars warm, 3 1/2 stars on ice
There were 4 of us trying this and the ratings were unanimous, even though 2 of us prefer cider warm. This is a really nice, refreshing cocktail and the warm one would be great sitting by a firepit or in front of the fireplace. The cinnamon stick is a little irrelevant, but you can use it as a straw - or leave it out!
This is a good drink for the repertoire. Not one you'll make all the time, but still a nice taste of fall.
