Spiced Caramel Cider

This morning parts of my lovely state saw the first snowfall of the season. Luckily, in my neck of the woods it was only rain, but the cold chill of winter is still making its way in. If there is one good thing about the cold weather ahead, it is the warm cocktails that make everything better. Tonight I will heat up my first cocktail and (attempt to) enjoy the cold weather. Since it’s still fall I think a warm cider drink is in order:

Spiced Caramel Cider

  • 3 parts hot cider
  • 1 part Malibu Black Spiced Rum
  • 1 part Hiram Walker Caramel Apple Liqueur

Add Malibu Black Spiced Rum and Hiram Walker Caramel Apple to glass of hot cider. Stir and serve hot.

Enjoy and stay warm!

Move over candy corn!

Halloween parties have finally concluded, which means no more costumes, no more pumpkin carving, and hopefully, for my sake, no more candy! It’s not that I don’t enjoy Halloween as much as the next person; I just LOVE Thanksgiving much more. No pressure to find a costume or buy gifts, just one holiday dedicated to being with friends and family for eating (and drinking).

Here are some delicious cocktails for the fall season and Thanksgiving, because it’s never too soon to start planning your Thanksgiving menu!

Friday Feature: The Golden Delicious

So I’m sure you’re thinking, “It’s only the first week of September, slow down with the fall recipes!” and normally I would agree, but it definitely felt like an autumn afternoon here in New England so I feel inclined to imbibe accordingly. What says fall more than a nice golden delicious apple? That’s right, nothing. So this week’s featured cocktail is the Golden Delicious.

Golden Delicious:

  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Caramel Apple Liqueur
  • 1 part ABSOLUT® Citron
  • 1 part Sour Mix

Shake well with ice and serve up.

This recipe will also be Sunday’s feature cocktail and will serve as a toast to the Big Apple and the New York Giants! Go GMen!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

See ya next year Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving, full of family, friends, food, and of course, booze! I personally couldn’t have had a better Thanksgiving week, and am already looking forward to next year’s Thanksgiving. But now that I have had a few days to mourn Thanksgiving’s end, I am ready for the Holiday Season! Here in CT there have been rumors of snow for tomorrow (we already had 6 inches a few weeks ago, but luckily I missed that storm as I was in Kansas City for BarSmarts Live, you can read about that trip here)

This Hiram Walker Caramel Apple Midnight Martini is perfect to enjoy during the cold weather!

Tonight to prepare for the cold (and possible snow) to come I plan on cozying up by a fire with a nice Caramel Apple Midnight Martini. This is a great recipe for the winter, and also a great martini to serve at holiday parties, which are sure to start popping up shortly!

Shake with ice and serve in a chilled martini glass.

Enjoy and bring on the Holidays 🙂
