Spiked Apple Cider [Friday Cocktails]

Happy Friday everyone!

Dreaming of an end-of-the-week libation? I’m hands down a Cocktail over Wine type girl. Perhaps it’s the fun combinations of ingredients or the fact that wine gives me terrible headaches…but cocktails are queen. Side note: I keep wishing the wine aversion away way but nothing seems to work-it’s really such a bummer. So for me, it’s mixed drinks all the way.

 Just like a great restaurant menu, a great cocktail should be seasonal. This particular drink makes me wants to be cozied up in a blanket in front of a campfire with a s’mores on the way.  Hope everyone enjoys my favorite seasonal cocktail:

Spiked (and spiced!) Apple Cider.
