Cider Sparkler

Maybe it’s growing up in California where we didn’t have a traditional fall, but I really enjoy the changing of the seasons.  Living in the Midwest now, I’ve really tried to embrace everything that comes with it.

J visited for a weekend, so I dragged him to a plethora of festive fall activities, including apple picking.

Apple Picking

We filled a bag of crisp, sweet Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Jonathan apples and grabbed a thing of Apple Cider to make this boozy, bubbly drink.

Recipe – Cider Sparkler

2 oz Apple Cider

1 oz Bourbon

Cheers!
