Give gin a unique and spicy twist with this apple and cinnamon infusion. Once your apple cinnamon gin is ready, use it in the cocktail recipe below.
Make the Gin:
Wash, core, and slice 1 small apple.
Place the apple in a clean, 1 pint mason jar.
Add 1-2 cinnamon sticks. Fill the jar to the top with your favorite gin.*
(A more neutral gin like Beefeater or Aviation works best here.)
Tightly cover the jar and put it in a cool, dark place - like a pantry or cupboard.
Let the jar sit for 7-14 days, gently swirling the jar every day or two.
After at least 7 days, strain the apples and cinnamon out of the gin.
Discard the apple and cinnamon remnants.
Enjoy the gin!
*Bourbon Option: Swap your favorite bourbon for the gin and follow all of the instructions outlined above, even the cocktail recipe!
