Apple Pie a la Mode Cocktail with Fireball Whisky and Vanilla Vodka

By: Bella Bucchiotti
This is the best ever apple pie a la mode cocktail. This cocktail with fireball whisky and vanilla vodka packs a punch! It’s great in the fall as an autumn cocktail recipe. So let’s find out some more about this apple cinnamon cocktail made with apple cider.
Prep Time: 14 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Infuse: 1 day
Total Time: 1 day 19 minutes
Servings: 16


To Infuse the Cider

  • 1/2 Gallon apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

For Pie Crust Garnish

  • 1 Package pie crust, Package of refrigerated ready-to-bake, optional for garnish

For a Single Mixed Drink: 

  • 1/2 Cup apple cider
  • 1 Oz. whisky, Cinnamon-flavoured such as Fireball
  • 1 Oz. vodka, vanilla-flavoured
  • 1 Tsp. brown sugar, for rimming 
  • 1 Wedge lemon , for rimming 
  • 1/2 Cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cinnamon stick , for garnish, optional


To Infuse the Apple Cider

  • Unscrew the lid to the apple cider and drop two cinnamon sticks directly into the container. Replace lid and return to the refrigerator until ready to use. The longer the cider sits, the more cinnamon-flavored it will become. I recommend infusing overnight, at least. 

To Create Pie Crust Cut Outs for Garnish

  • Open the package of pie crusts and remove one of the two crusts from the box. If it has been refrigerated, allow it to set out on the counter to soften for about 15-20 minutes.  
  • Preheat your oven to 450-degrees Fahrenheit (232-degrees Celsius). While the oven is preheating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Once the crust has softened, carefully unroll the dough. If you notice any tears or cracks in the dough, softly press them down with your fingertips, molding them back together.  
  • Using cookie cutters of your choice, cut out several shapes. Waste less pie crust by cutting out the shapes close together. Gently place the cut-outs on the parchment and discard the scrap dough. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until browned. Keep an eye on them, as the time they need to bake will depend on their size. The smaller pieces will brown much faster. 

For a Single Mixed Drink (See Notes for a Pitcher)

  • Swipe a lemon wedge around the edge of a 9- to 10-ounce glass. Dip the damp rim into a shallow plate of light brown sugar. Allow brown sugar to set-up for a minute or so. Then, add a ½ cup scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream to the glass. 
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine infused apple cider, cinnamon whisky, and vanilla vodka. Shake until combined and pour over ice cream in prepared glass. If you wish, add a cinnamon stick and pie crust cut-outs for a garnish. 


For a batch (makes 16 servings): 
  • 1 (½ gallon) jug of infused apple cider (instructions above) 
  • 2 cups cinnamon whisky (such as Fireball) 
  • 2 cups vanilla-flavored vodka 
  • ½ gallon vanilla ice cream 
  • Brown sugar for rimming 
  • Lemon wedge for rimming 
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)  
  • Pie crust cut-outs for garnish (instructions above) 
  1. In a large drink dispenser or punch bowl, add infused cider, cinnamon whisky and vanilla-flavored vodka. Stir to mix.  
  2. *If using a drink dispenser or large pitcher: Serve drinks over an ice cream scoop in brown sugar-rimmed glasses. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.  
*If using a punch bowl, you can scoop the ice cream directly into the punch bowl with the apple pie cocktail. Serve in brown sugar-rimmed glasses and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
