(makes 6 cocktails – can be served hot or cold)

for the infused simple syrup
½ fresh pear, chopped, keep other ½ for garnish
½ fresh apple, chopped, keep other ½ for garnish
2 cinnamon sticks
½ teaspoon apple pie spice
½ cup sugar
1 cup water

for the cocktail
6 ounces gold rum (omit for a mocktail)
4 ounces prepared simple syrup
2-4 cups apple cider
cinnamon sticks (garnish) 

For the simple syrup, boil water and sugar over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once combined, add pears, apples, and spices. Boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat, cool in refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator and strain mixture through a mesh sieve. Add rum, syrup and 2 cups of cold apple cider to a pitcher. Stir to combine, then taste. If too boozy, add more apple cider. Pour into glasses, garnish with more chopped apples, pears, and a cinnamon stick.

 TIP: If you prefer a hot cocktail, heat the apple mixture with apple cider in a pan. Pour into heat resistant glass and garnish as you like.
Always drink responsibly. Never drink and drive.
