Oak Cider Donut Cocktail Recipe with Oak by Absolut


My triumphant return to cocktail making, 11 months, and one baby boy, in the making. For someone who truly loves a good drink, that is a long time to wait.

Luckily my friends at Absolut rose to the occasion with a special release, just in time for my return to the bar cart.....Oak by Absolut. Available in only a few select markets, you can hunt this special spirit down this fall in the greater Boston area. Oak by Absolut is a combination of original Absolut vodka, barrel rested vodka and vodka rested on oak. Intrigued? 

It's pretty perfect for fall here in New England, hence my inspiration for the Oak Cider Donut. It's a cider-y twist on those delicious bites all over this season. Not too sweet, lots of depth, and a subtle vanilla, caramel, oak flavor imported by the Oak by Absolut.

Find it while you can!
