The Perfect Fall Cocktail
I love fall! It is one of my favorite seasons. I only have two faves and the other season is spring. I could easily hibernate through summer and since most of my friends are booed up during the winter months, I'm usually limited on outings. In my opinion, fall represents a distinct, uncanny feeling of change. It gives people a little discomfort (summer is over and they have to put their clothes back on, Thank You, God) but for me, it brings the excitement that something is on the rise. A new year is about to approach, the temperature slightly changes daily and the smell in the air becomes crisp. The leaves on trees change from red, orange, yellow to brown - I wish the colors could stay a few extra months. I love to see vibrant orange everywhere… To add to this lovely season is the opportunity to try new cocktails that suit the weather and our mood. A perfect cocktail for fall is Bourbon Apple Cider.
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
4 sprigs of fresh thyme
1-ounce apple brandy or apple cider (or both)
Combine the ingredients, pour it over a glass of ice and Enjoy!
