Recipe Notes

  • The longer it sits, the better! Make an hour or two before serving and let it sit in the fridge.
  • There are many gluten-free vodkas out there, my two favorite are Ciroc Vodka and Tito's Handmade Vodka. Tequila and rum are generally naturally gluten-free. Read labels and be cautious of added flavors.
  • I buy my cider fresh from a local farm.
