Raise a glass this President's Day with an all-American cocktail that leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy inside like a slice of homemade apple pie.

Simple yet sweet, this clean and crisp cocktail is sure to become a new holiday tradition.

  • 1 small sweet apple such as gala, honey crisp or pink lady
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 dash bitters
  • Pinch cinnamon
