Mead Cocktails

Mead can serve as a glorious addition to a cocktail. Honey provides a robust and elegant sweetness that is much preferred to white sugar or the standard corn syrup-- Yuck! Try the recipes below, or try replacing a sweet liqueur with a mead that plays nice with the other cocktail ingredients. You're only limited by your own creativity, so get mixing!

Heat me up, Scotty

1 part Fresh Pressed Apple Cider (We recommend Distillery Lane Ciderworks)

1 cinnamon stick

Orange rind (optional)

Heat the mead and cider in a saucepan until you can smell the alcohol evaporating (about 175 degrees), then remove and serve with a cinnamon stick. If you're feeling frisky, add a splash of grain alcohol or bourbon after finished heating.
