Servings 8 bottles


  • 32 ounces apple cider
  • 12 ounces calvados
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup honey, we used Meadowfoam from Bee Raw Honey
  • 6 tablespoons vanilla flavored syrup, we used Sonoma Simple Syrup
  • 4 lemons, juiced
  • directions for bottling homemade cocktails


  • The easiest way to make these for bottling is to make them in batches of 2 bottles or 4 bottles. My instructions below are for four bottles so you will repeat this just once for the whole recipe (8 bottles total). And you can double or triple this depending on your party size.
  • In a large glass jar mix 16 ounces of cider with 6 ounces of calvados. Juice one full lemon into the mix. Add 2 tablespoons of honey and stir well to make sure the honey incorporates into the mixture (this may take a few minutes). Add 3 tablespoons of vanilla syrup then 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir, stir, stir.
  • Pour into glasses or sanitized bottles. You may serve this chilled or warm by heating up the bottles in a large pot of simmering water for about 10 minutes.
