3. Fill with ice: Add ice cubes to fill the glass to the top.

4. Top it off: Slowly pour the hard cider over the ice.

5. Garnish (optional): Add a lemon wedge to the rim of the glass.

6. Enjoy! Sip and savor the delicious blend of fall flavors.

Tips and Variations

Warm it up: For a cozy autumn treat, warm the cider with the bourbon and maple syrup in a saucepan over low heat before serving.

Adjust sweetness: Use more or less maple syrup to suit your taste.

Spice it up: Add a pinch of cinnamon or a dash of bitters for extra complexity.

Switch up the cider: Experiment with different types of hard cider, like a pear cider, for a unique twist.

Important Thing: Remember to adjust the quantities based on the number of servings you wish to make.
