Classic fall flavors with a kick, this Crown Apple Cider is the perfect fireside companion!
Crown Royal Apple Cider
Refreshing and crisp, this Crown Apple Cider really hits the spot after a day of apple picking or pumpkin carving! It’s such a simple drink, and ready in minutes, but tastes so good you’d think you’re a professional bartender! Get ready to take a sip of fall and make your new favorite drink!
Apple cider is traditionally a hot drink (like our crockpot mulled apple cider). However, we switched it up and made something a bit different with this cold apple cider cocktail. It’s perfect for tailgating or any get-together because you don’t need to pack a lot of supplies…it’s only 2 ingredients plus over ice!

Crown Apple Cider Ingredients
Sometimes the best cocktail recipes are the simplest! This recipe has only 2 ingredients!
- Crown Royal Apple
- Apple Cider
- Red Apple Slices
- Cinnamon Sticks
- Star Anise
TIP: To make a pitcher or larger serving, use a ratio of 1 parts Crown Apple to 2 parts apple cider. If you like your drink a little sweeter and less strong, use a ratio of 1:3.
What Does Crown Apple Whiskey Taste Like?
Crown Royal Regal Apple is infused with real Gala apples, for a deliciously smooth flavor with hints of crisp apple. It’s a little tart, a little sweet, with a bit of spice on the finish.
While it’s fabulous to sip on its own, Crown Apple makes a perfect base for fall-themed cocktail recipes like this one!
How to make Spiked Apple Cider with Crown Apple Whisky
Ok…are you ready for this?!
This might just be the easiest fall drink we’ve ever shared…there’s no mixing required!
First, fill a glass with ice cubes.
Next, pour in a shot of Crown Royal Apple.
Top the rest of the glass with apple cider.
Finally, garnish with apple slices. We used a toothpick to fan them out to make them look extra pretty.
You could also garnish with cinnamon sticks, like I do with my favorite Thanksgiving Margarita!
Note: This recipe is intended for readers 21+. Please enjoy responsibly!
Can You Make this Recipe Ahead of Time?
Absolutely! That is one of the best things about this spiked apple cider recipe…you can mix in advance.
That makes it great for gatherings, like tailgate. Mix ahead of time and keep in a big jug or cooler. Then you can simply pour when you’re ready! Just give it a quick shake or stir to make sure it’s well mixed before serving.
