Cocktail Recipe: October Sunrise Hard Cider Cocktail
Cocktail Recipe For Fall
Thank goodness it is Thursday. The first week of October deserves its own cocktail: October Sunrise Hard Cider Cocktail. This week’s thirsty Thursday recipe is a full on celebration of fall, filled with apple and peach flavors. Hard apple cider is coming back into vogue and this makes me more than happy. This used to be my go to delight when I was in graduate school, and it is about time other people experienced the tastiness of a nice hard cider.
The October Sunrise combines hard cider with tequila, unusual yes but the mix is surprisingly delicious. Add in the peach and mint and you have an autumn staple for years to come. This cocktail for fall will be sure to impress you and your guests this season.

October Sunrise Cocktail Recipe
1 oz. Blue Nectar Reposado Tequila
3 oz. hard cider
¼ oz. crème de peach
¼ oz. marmalade syrup
Chopped peaches and mint for garnish
In a cocktail shaker add all liquid ingredients and ice. Shake and strain into a mason jar. Garnish with chopped peaches and mint and serve.
I love the use of mason jars with this cocktail. It brings the feel of fall, pumpkin patches, hay rides, and apple picking to your party, even if it is in Downtown. I can just see this cocktail in a mason jar on a wood table, or one covered in a linen or burlap table cloth for a party. Don’t forget the mint, it may sound minimal but the hint of green really brings some bright to the cocktail.
What do you think about the combination of hard cider and tequila?
