This take on the old New England drink features apple brandy rather than the usual rum. Substitute applejack or plain brandy, if you like.

How to Make It

Combine first 4 ingredients in a pitcher. Serve over ice. Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks, if desired.

My favorite autumn cocktail, I used "apple pie" liquer (calvados is very expensive) and seltzer instead of sparkling apple juice. Made apple cider ice cubes so not to water down the pitcher of drinks. Served last year on T-day and got rave reviews.

I made this for a Super Bowl party, and everyone enjoyed it. I used plain brandy instead of apple brandy but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Next time I will add a bit more brandy.
