You don’t need toast to enjoy this apple butter. Whip up simple syrup by simmering one part sugar with one part water until the sugar is dissolved, then chill.
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp sugar
1 ounce hard cider
1 ounce butterscotch schnapps
1/2 to 1 ounce cinnamon schnapps
Cinnamon stick (optional)
Chill a martini glass by filling it with ice or placing it in the freezer. Mix the cinnamon with sugar and pour it into a saucer. Pour a shallow layer of simple syrup into another saucer. Add the cider and schnapps to a cocktail shaker (or large glass) filled with ice, cover and shake vigorously. Discard the ice from the martini glass, then dip the rim in simple syrup followed by cinnamon-sugar. Strain and pour the cocktail into the chilled glass. Drop in a cinnamon stick to garnish.
