What you see above is golden. This beautiful drink is a Ginger Whiskey Cider, and it tastes as good as it looks! I know cider season is pretty much over, but they still had it at the store, and it's delicious any time of the year, so I went with it. I'm glad I did, because I love anything that comes out looking like honey. This drink would be perfect to make as a big batch in punch form, for a holiday party or what have you. The ginger adds a nice little bite to the sweet cider and whiskey. That's what always gets me with whiskey, why I don't drink it often. It's the sweetness. Add cider, ginger beer, and orange bitters though, and I've got myself a tidy little cocktail. Even though it's not a toddy, it'll warm you up like one. That's a perk of whiskey or bourbon, regardless of their taste. For a seasonal drink, I figured this one was perfect!
