Use a cocktail shaker. Instead of mixing everything directly in your mason jar, you can mix this cocktail in a cocktail shaker. Then, make your brown sugar rim around the mason jar with the simple syrup and brown sugar before pouring the delicious fall cocktail.

Make a hot apple pie cocktail. Warm up your apple cider before mixing your drink. I also suggest ditching the ice cubes to keep this a nice hot drink. In this case, you could also serve this cocktail in coffee mugs instead of mason jars. You could also mix everything together and warm in over medium-high heat in a small saucepan for just a short period of time to make a great drink.

Trade spirits. Instead of Fireball whisky, you can use any cinnamon whisky that you have and prefer. If you don’t like vanilla vodka, you can use another fall flavored vodka. You can also use regular vodka with vanilla extract if in a pinch.

Add Apple Crisp Syrup. If you really want even more apple, you can add some Apple Crisp Syrup, or trade it out for some of the spices that you planned on using.


  • Depending on the kind and size of mason jar you use, it can be difficult to get the brown sugar to stick to the rim. In this case, use some Corn Syrup or Honey as an alternative to simple syrup.
  • If you don’t have cinnamon sticks, you can add ground cinnamon.
  • If you don’t want to use a mason jar, you can use any cocktail glass.

Can You Make A Big Batch?

Yes, this recipe is easy to scale to make more fall cocktails! If you wish, you can make a larger batch of this in a pitcher and then serve them from the pitcher and pour into individual glasses or jars.

Can I Make These Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can. The only thing we suggest doing is making this and storing it in a pitcher in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them. Do NOT add the ice to the pitcher, simply add ice to jars when you want to serve. You can make this drink a few hours in advance.


Since you can make larger batches of this ahead of time, you can store smaller jars of this as well. If you plan on storing, do not add the ice to the drinks or you’ll end up with watered down Apple Pie Cocktails.

I only suggest storing this drink for a few hours.
