Warm Apple Pie Cocktail

Today I’ve got a delicious fall cocktail for you.  It’s perfect for the up-coming holidays or any special celebration.

These fabulous cocktails are like warm apple pie with all the best flavors of fall poured into a glass and topped with whipped cream and cinnamon.  You’re going to love them.  They do include a splash of rum, which could be left out for kids and others who prefer it plain.IMG_8685

Most everyone loves warm apple cider with fall spices. It is such a great fall and winter drink; I don’t think you can go wrong with this one.  If making this for a large group, you could make the basic spicy cider in the crockpot which would keep it warm, and add the rum to individual glasses as served, or leave it out, your choice.

With one of these in hand you just might want to sit by the fire all day and keep on sipping.
