Fall is finally here! It hasn’t cooled off one bit here in Miami, but I am ready for fall flavors, baby! Bring on all the pumpkin, the apple, the squash, the warm soups and spicy cinnamon-y notes. Bring on the hot cocoa and spiced chai, I am ready for it!
I decided to make a speecy-spicy little cocktail for myself and a few friends using the new SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener with some of that gorgeous fall flavor – apples! Using Grand Marnier (an orange liqueur) with a dash of Frangelico (to give it a slight nuttiness) served with unsweetened apple juice with a spicy cinnamon-Splenda rim, how can you resist?
Cinnamon Apple Grand Marnier-tini
1 ounce Grand Marnier®
1/2 ounce Frangelico
3 ounces unsweetened apple juice
1 packet of SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener
1 cinnamon stick garnish (optional)
For the rim
2 packets of SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener
On a small flat bread plate or cutting board, sprinkle cinnamon generously.
Add SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener to the cinnamon.
Using your fingertip, coat a little apple juice on the lip of the glass; dip immediately into the cinnamon SPLENDA® mixture.
Mix together all drink ingredients in a shaker with ice
Pour carefully into the glass gently as to not damage the cinnamon rim.
This cocktail mixes up real quick and easy, too! Great for fall entertaining with friends! Garnishing with a real cinnamon stick adds a little extra spicy flair, don’t you think?
Great-tasting, no-calorie natural sweetener made with stevia extract- but not just any stevia extract: SPLENDA® Naturals gets its unique sweetness from Reb D, one of the tastiest extracts from the stevia leaf. There are different definitions of “natural” in the food industry and among consumers. For the folks at SPLENDA® Brand, “natural” means no added flavors or colors, no preservatives, and only non-GMO ingredients made by minimal and common processes. The result is SPLENDA® Naturals Sweetener with its great sweet taste.
