Ingredients

Clove Simple Syrup: 
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
Cocktail:
  • 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce clove simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 ounces hard cider
  • Apple slice studded with a few whole cloves, for garnish, optional

Directions

For the clove simple syrup: Combine the brown sugar, cloves and 1 cup water in a pan and heat until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool and sit for 2 to 3 hours; strain off the cloves before using. (Store any remaining syrup in a sealed jar, refrigerated, for up to 1 week.)

For the cocktail: Add the bourbon, lemon juice and clove simple syrup to a shaker and add ice. Shake vigorously and pour into a highball glass. Top with hard cider--and if you're feeling fancy--garnish with an apple slice studded with a few whole cloves. That part is optional though. As are pants.
