This easy sipper combines mellow Jack Daniel’s whiskey with plenty of apple cider and Licor 43, a vanilla-tinged Spanish liqueur.

  • 4 ounces apple cider
  • ¾ ounce lemon juice
  • 1½ ounces Jack Daniel’s
  • ¾ ounce Licor 43
  • 3 dashes of Angostura bitters

Pour the apple cider and lemon juice into a saucepan, heating until just before the liquid boils. Turn off the heat, add the next two ingredients and stir. Pour into a mug and add the Angostura bitters just before serving. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
