I love nothing more than fresh apple cider when fall arrives! 

Warmed up with a cinnamon stick stirrer, cocktails, floats or plain by itself, fresh apple cider is great any way you drink it. 

Today's recipe is a simple, yet elegant drink. This martini is full of delicious fall flavors and a cinnamon and sugar rimmed glass? Total perfection!

I love the flavor that the maple syrup adds, and the lime is just the perfect addition to brighten up the cider, triple sec and vodka.

This cocktail is a great way to end your busy day, serve it at Thanksgiving or even at your next football party! Everyone will love it and it might even become a new favorite!
