Apple Crown Drinks Recipe

This 3 ingredient Crown Apple cocktail gets its citrus taste from the lemon-lime soda. When mixed with cranberry juice, lemon-lime soda tones down the slight tart of the cranberry flavor.

Add the taste of apple with Crown Apple whisky and it’s a heavenly mixture of fruity flavors. Altogether, it’s a perfect combination of sweet and tart with delightful tiny little bubbles.

Honestly, it’s hard to tell you’re drinking a cocktail, so be careful with this one! It goes down easy.

What Does Apple Crown Taste Like?

Apple Crown whisky is made with real apples, called Regal Gala apples, and you can taste them. It’s distinctly apple flavored.

The apple and the sweetness notes are apparent, but not overwhelming. The light flavor of caramel and spice gives the whisky a smooth rich taste.

It’s full-bodied, lightly fruity, very smooth with no whisky burn. It has more of a nice cozy warming sensation going down that’s easy to sip on. The taste of the whisky is more upfront with a lasting apple after taste.

What to Mix with Apple Crown?

Crown Apple is easily adaptable to most Crown Royal cocktail recipes. It’s versatile and mixes well with any flavor that compliments apple.

The more popular Apple Crown mixers are:

  • Lemonade
  • Fruit juices such as cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and orange juice.
  • Sprite or 7up
  • Apple Cider or Apple Juice
  • Coke
  • Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
  • Ginger Ale or Ginger Beer
  • Apple or Peach Schnapps
  • Champagne, sparkling wine or prosecco with fruit juices
