dried apples, sliced apples and/or oranges for serving
Add the apple cider, bourbon and jam to a cocktail shaker or mason jar with a few ice cubes. Shake until mixed, about 30 seconds, then pour the drink into a frosty glass. I prefer to use frosty glasses over actual ice because I find that the jam sticks to the ice.
Top off the cocktail with the ginger beer, a few fresh grates of nutmeg if you'd like, and an orange or apple slice. Serve with a spoon (with more jam if desired) - the secret to these cocktails is to stir occasionally so the jam doesn't settle so much. Enjoy!
