After the crazy reception that my Root Beer Float Cocktail received, I thought I’d share another favourite ice cream cocktail: a creamy and delicious Apple Pie a la Mode Cocktail.
This Apple Pie a la Mode Cocktail is an indulgent way to end a crisp summer day. Creamy and rich with a caramel-apple flavour, this cocktail is one way to have your apple pie and drink it, too!
(And if this recipe puts you in the mood for some fresh apple pie, check out our recipe with the most fool-proof pie crust you can make from scratch!)
If you don’t have apple cider, apple juice will substitute well but I’ve only ever added apple juice cold. I don’t know why warm apple cider is amazing and warm apple juice is the worst idea in the world to me, but it is. A beer cider would also be a fun way to experiment with this fall cocktail – if you try it, please let me know how it was!
How to Make an Apple Pie Cocktail
- 4 oz Amaretto
- 1 cup apple cider
- 2 scoops ice cream
Place 2 oz of Amaretto (almond liqueur) in the bottom of your serving glass and top with a scoop of ice cream.
Optionally, if you want a warm cocktail you can warm up your apple cider in the microwave or a in saucepan over medium-heat before adding it to the cocktail.
Pour 1/2 cup of apple cider over the ice cream, or enough to fill the serving glass.
Taste and add more Amaretto as needed.
