Tis the season! If I’m being honest, I love all things fall and unfortunately for me, that means all things pumpkin. Gasp! Did she just say that? Yes, I did; I don’t like pumpkin. I know I must be crazy. Believe it or not us anti-pumpkiners exist... we’re out there! Problem is, I love a good holiday cocktail as much as the next girl, but too often that somehow means pumpkin or eggnog. Ya, I don’t like eggnog either. I know I’m terrible.
So with Thanksgiving and the holidays quickly approaching, I was on the hunt for a great holiday cocktail that puts me in the spirit. When I stumbled upon this amazing recipe from Andrea Bemis of DishingUpTheDirt I had to try it. With a little apple cider, a little bubbly, its perfection. And It was too good not to share.
So this one is for the pumpkin hating, cider loving, anti-eggnoggers out there. Enjoy this amazing taste of fall and cheers with those you love!
