How to Make Apple Pie Cider Floats
- Make cinnamon syrup first: Put 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to melt the sugar thoroughly. Set aside for later.
- In a pitcher, place 2 cups apple cider, 1/4 cup cinnamon syrup previously made up, apple Schnapps, and bourbon. Whisk until blended. (Can also be shaken in a cocktail shaker.)
- Pour about 3 inches of cocktail mix into a coffee mug. Microwave until very warm but not super hot. Drop 3 scoops of ice cream into the mug. Stir a little. Serve with a cinnamon stick or spoon. You can add a squirt of whipped cream on top to decorate. The hot cider melts the ice cream into a wonderful apple pie flavored drink! You can adjust the amount of bourbon and Schnapps as you like.
- If you save this in the fridge for later, be sure to whisk it well before putting in the mug as the cinnamon tends to settle to the bottom when chilled.
