Autumn's apple abundance is well worth raising a glass to. Honeycrisp apples are sweet with a touch of tartness that lends an invigorating crisp flavor, giving this boozy beverage plenty to buzz about. Maple syrup bolsters the warmth of the bourbon.

1 cup water
1/2 cup unfiltered apple cider
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
5 ounces bourbon

How to Make It
Process 14 oz. Honeycrisp apple slices, water, apple cider, lemon juice, and maple syrup in a blender until smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes. Pour through a fine sieve into an ice-filled pitcher. Discard solids. Stir in bourbon. Garnish, if desired.
Make It a Mocktail: Swap out the bourbon for 5 ounces light ginger beer, such as Fever-Tree Naturally Light.
