Preparation 10 minutes Total Time 0:10 Serves 1 or 18 servings     adjust servings

Ingredients

For the cider honey syrup

For a large batch/pitcher (serves 18)

  • 2 1/4 cups whiskey or bourbon
  • 1 1/2 cups of the cider honey syrup (entire batch)
  • 2 1/4 cups prosecco, champagne, or sparkling white wine
  • 9 sprigs of rosemary

For a single cocktail

  • 1 ounce whiskey or bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cider honey syrup
  • 1 ounce prosecco, champagne, or sparkling white wine (or enough to top off the glass)
  • 1/2 sprig of rosemary

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk the honey, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and orange juice together until it starts to bubble. Remove from heat and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  2. In a pitcher or shaker, mix the honey syrup and whiskey together with a good amount of ice so that it is completely chilled. Strain into a different pitcher or serving glass. (Note: caution that you don’t let the honey and whiskey mixture sit in the ice for too long so that it doesn’t get watered down.)
  3. Keep refrigerated.
  4. Just before serving, add prosecco to top off the glass and garnish with a ½ sprig of rosemary.
