Caramel Apple Drink Ingredients
All you need are 5 simple ingredients to create this delicious caramel apple cocktail:
- Crown Royal Apple Whisky
- Caramel Sauce
- Apple Cider
- Ginger Ale
- Brown Sugar (for rim)
- Optional: Cinnamon Stick or a Sprinkle of Ground Cinnamon (for garnish)
How to Make a Crown Royal Caramel Apple Drink
Step 1: Rim your glass with a caramel and brown sugar mix. You’ll need 2 saucers. In one saucer add caramel syrup. In the other saucer add brown sugar.
Dip the rim of your glass in the caramel sauce first. Then dip in the brown sugar to coat the caramel sauce.
Step 2: Add 1-2 teaspoons of caramel sauce to the bottom of the glass.
Tip: One teaspoon gives this drink a very light caramel flavor as the apple cider is the stronger taste. If you want more caramel flavor, go for 2 teaspoons! I used two.
Step 3: Pour 1.5 oz to 2 ounces of Crown Royal Apple whisky over the caramel syrup.
Depending on how strong you like your cocktails, personally 2 ounces of Crown Apple is perfect.
Step 4: Stir the caramel sauce and Crown Apple together until completely mixed. Make sure there are no caramel chunks before adding the remainder ingredients.
Step 5: Add 3 ounces of apple cider. Again, make sure all the caramel sauce is thoroughly mixed.
Tip: If your apple cider is chilled, the caramel sauce might clump up. In this case, simply stir the mix again until the caramel sauce is dissolved.
Step 6: Add ice to your cocktail glass and top with approximately 2 ounces of ginger ale and stir.
Step 7: If you enjoy a hint of cinnamon, add a cinnamon stick or a sprinkle of ground cinnamon for garnish.
Crown Royal Caramel Apple Drink Variations
- Substitute Crown Royal Regal Apple for Crown Royal Salted Caramel whisky for more caramel flavor and less apple.
- Split the difference and use .75 oz of Crown Apple and .75 Crown Salted Caramel.
- Use Caramel Apple Cider (it’s harder to find, but usually available in the fall)
- Substitute the brown sugar rim with cinnamon sugar if you love cinnamon apple caramel flavors.
- Garnish with fresh apple slices (these do make a great appetizer with this drink).
- Make this drink how you like it! Add more or less of any of the ingredients to suit your tastes.
Fall is a fantastic time for apple cocktails! The crispiness of the apple cider coupled with caramel sweetness makes it a must try fall cocktail. Serve it up at your next fall gathering or cozy up and sip at home by the fire.
