Honey Cider Beer Cocktail Recipe

It’s an apple cider cocktail, not a beer-tini.

Apple Cider Cocktail

We love a glass of cider and we love a glass of cold beer – so why not put them together? Enter the apple cider cocktail. Come fall, with the herbs, spices and flavors today’s craft brewers are using, cider and beer are a natural fit for some delightful seasonal sipping. This Honey Cider Beer Cocktail fills a pitcher and will be a welcomed addition to any fall festivity.

Honey Cider Beer Cocktail Recipe

Honey Cider Beer Cocktail

Yields: 12 Cocktails


  • ¾ cups apple cider
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 cups seltzer water, chilled
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 (12-oz.) bottles pale ale-style beer, chilled
  • 1 apple, cored, thinly sliced crosswise




Combine the cider and honey in a small pan over medium-high heat, bring to a simmer. Cook the mixture until it is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove the pan from heat to cool to room temperature, then cover and chill for 4 hours.

Place 1/2 cup of the chilled cider mixture in a large pitcher, adding the seltzer, lemon juice, and beer. Stir in half of the apple slices and serve over ice, garnish with the remaining apple slices for party flare.
