Default cider and liqueur

My ciders are all dry and on the tart side. I enjoy them, but sometimes I wish they were just a tad sweet to cut some of the tartness. So, I had this brilliant idea tonight. I added about an ounce (total guestimate) of passionfruit liqueur to a glass and poured a bottle of cider on top. Absolutely delicious! Not too sweet, but just enough. Still tart, but not too much. And the passionfruit and apple really complement each other.

I bet this trick would work with pretty much any fruit liqueur and maybe some spiced ones too. After Shock cider, perhaps? Why yes, I am drinking tonight...

Makes sense...Hadn't thought of that. What does it say that instead of thinking about adding apple juice, I went straight to the liquor cabinet?

My friends make this occasionally.

3 oz. Cider
1 oz. Gin
1 tsp. Triple Sec
Orange slice for garnish (optional)
Ice

Great for hot summer days!
