Warm Autumnal Cocktail: Spiked Cinnamon Apple Cider
Apple cider is a sweet treat that we look forward to having all year, and once the leaves start turning and the nights get chilly we know it’s almost time! This cocktail is fantastic for parties and it’s easy to adjust the measurements; or, if you don’t feel like drinking, you can make a non-alcoholic version, no problem. Even if it weren’t heated up this cocktail would warm you right up, so go to your nearest farm or apple orchard, get yourself some apple cider and get started!
