I love visiting our local cider mill to pick up some fresh cider and it’s time for a fall cocktail! Try this citrus apple cider martini with rosemary infused simple syrup. You will love the sweet, tart and herbal tones in this drink. You can make up a batch of the rosemary simple syrup and keep it on hand for other cocktails. Try it in salad homemade dressing for a little sweetness and rosemary flavor. Shake up this cocktail at your next happy hour! | ethnicspoon.com
