Apple Cinnamon Infused Whiskey Recipe

How to infuse whiskey with this apple cinnamon whiskey recipe. Perfect to sip on or make into a fall cocktail. 

I look forward to Fall mostly just for the Fall flavors, well maybe the cooler weather too. I am the first in line for a pumpkin spice latte when it arrives… I even consider that day the first day of Fall. I am basic to the core and I embrace it. So why would you think it would be any different when it comes to my cocktails? 

I love to infuse vodkas so I thought why not try to infuse whiskey? I had apple pie moonshine a few years ago when I was in Tennessee and it just tasted like fall in a mason jar. I was inspired by that to make apple cinnamon infused whiskey. 

Fall Cocktails

I love fall cocktails so much that myself and some of my favorite bloggers are throwing a fall cocktail party! Every Saturday for the next few weeks we will be posting some of our favorite Fall alcoholic drinks. This Summer we hosted a summer cocktail party that included Pina Colada shots, strawberry lemonade vodka freeze pops, pineapple coconut mojito, aperol spritz and many more.

3 Ingredients

This is a simple recipe and really you will just need 3 ingredients and a mason jar. I chose to use honey whiskey since it already has a bit of sweetness to it. I also already had some in my bar cart. I picked a gala apple but really any kind of apple will work. You will also need cinnamon sticks.

Now cinnamon sticks can be expensive but I want to tell you my trick. In the spices aisle at my grocery store they are $7.99 but if you go two aisles over to the international section you can find them with the spanish spices for .99. I can’t believe I ever paid full price for cinnamon sticks!

  1. I have never created an infused drink but I love apple cinnamon combo…well, who doesn’t? Anyway this looks pretty, dang good and easy. And thanks for the tip about the cinnamon sticks. I would have never thought to look anywhere but the spice aisle! Wow..what a price difference!

  2. This looks pretty fabulous! I love honey whiskey and apple cinnamon, so I must try this soon! Also, you can get cinnamon sticks at the dollar tree too. I never knew you could get them in the mexican spices aisle, I will check there for sure.

  3. I just made apple/cinnamon hot tea mixed with Rum Chata and a tsp of sugar. Delicious! Great on cool autumn night. Try it—you’ll like it!
