Drink Recipe: Italian Cider

This drink may sound strange when you read the ingredient list, but if you like cider-like drinks, you'll love this fall cocktail.  The ingredients work surprisingly well together.

  • 3/4 oz Tequila (reposado)
  • 3/4 oz Limoncello
  • 1/2 oz Tuaca
  •  3 1/2 oz Apple Juice
  • Shake all ingredients with ice in a shaker.
  • Strain into a martini glass.
  • Garnish w/a cinnamon stick.

As you can see from the photo, I didn't strain it into a martini glass but made it into a cocktail in a highball glass and then sprinkled some cinnamon on top.



  1. Isn't that a double old-fashioned glass not a high ball? Anyone got a definitive answer as to when a glass becomes a high ball?

  2. Yes, you're right - it's a lowball or double old fashioned glass. A highball is just "taller" than an old fashioned glass. Am happy that you're reading the blog!
