Pro Tips
A little bitter
With bitters, a little bit goes a long way. Two or three drops will add much depth to your cocktail. Also, you might like orange bitters for this drink.
Sear-iously fancy
Searing wheels of lime, lemon or orange creates exceptional garnishes that add both aesthetic appeal and caramelized aromas to your drink.
Making the cut
Cutting citrus over your serving glass can add a fresh, zesty essence and pleasing aroma to your drink. Always cut with care.

How to

  1. In a champagne glass, stir together the sugar and the bitters until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add Maker's Mark®.
  3. Top with cold cider.
