Cocktail Gingerbread Apple Crisp

Ahhh, the first week of fall. The air is getting crisper, we’re breaking out the riding boots and cozy sweaters, and pumpkin-spice¬†everything is available everywhere.

But there’s another staple of fall that is often overlooked – apples! In honor of apple picking season, here’s a delicious cocktail to serve when you’ve returned home from the orchards, or even during Sunday brunch! It’s apple crisp, in a glass.

Cocktail Gingerbread Apple Crisp


  • 1 oz Monin gingerbread syrup
  • 2 oz Bacardi Big Apple rum
  • 2 oz apple juice
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • Apple slice (for garnish)


  • Place 1/2 cup of simple syrup and 4 tablespoons of graham cracker crumbs on separate plates.
  • Dip outside rim of martini glass into simple syrup, then into graham cracker crumbs several times to ensure coverage. Set aside.
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine rum, gingerbread syrup, apple juice and lemon juice.
  • Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into rimmed martini glass.
  • Garnish with red apple slice.
