Add all ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.
Shake vigorously, and strain into an Old Fashioned glass over a large ice cube.

*Apple cider syrup:
4 cups (473 ml) Apple cider, freshly pressed
In a medium saucepan, bring the apple cider to a boil. Reduce the heat and continue to simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced to one cup (about 1 hour). Remove from heat and allow to cool. Store, refrigerated, for up to two weeks. (syrup makes enough for 8 cocktails)
