Created by Anthony Baker, a freelance cocktail professor, this refreshing drink hints of cooler weather ahead. The fresh pear and apple cider cool the heat of the rye whiskey with wonderful spice notes from the bitters.

  • ¼ D’Anjou pear, plus 1 slice for garnish
  • ¾ oz. simple syrup
  • ½ oz. lemon juice
  • 4 dashes Hella Cocktail Co. Apple Blossom bitters
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 oz. dry hard cider
  • Rosemary sprig and cinnamon stick for garnish
