It's prime picking season for apples in Nebraska. Temperatures are dropping. When it's cold out, you don't want to grab an iced martini or a canned beer quite as much as you do in the hot summer months. Cider, be it alcoholic or virgin, is a great building block for boozy drinks in the colder months.

Boz Hicks, the bar manager at Jake's Cigars and Spirits said the drink's natural sweet taste works well within cocktails; it has the same sugariness that you'd get from any soda. You get the sweetness and the bubbles in one big splash, he said. The drink also has a natural tartness, which helps out. Hicks said he hopes to roll out a few cider drinks when Jake's revamps its menu in early November.
