Apple Cider Cars

Happy un-Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you were able to relax and enjoy some good food with people you love :)

I was lucky enough to spend the whole week up in a cabin in the Virginia mountains with my family. While we made all sorts of delicious food for Thanksgiving, including my favorite stuffing recipe of all time and my mom’s famous cranberry relish, I whipped up our signature cocktail, Apple Cider Cars, to sip on throughout the course of the day. I’ll leave you with this seasonal cocktail recipe and a few pictures of the fun up here.

In a pitcher, stir together:

-2 c. fresh apple cider

Taste and adjust the proportions to your liking. Pour over ice and garnish with an apple slice. Enjoy!

Oh, and I brought a little bit of the Shenandoahs back to DC ;)

J’ai été fourrée comme une dinde.
I was stuffed like a turkey.
