Spiced Cider Martini
Maybe it’s just me, but summer in Minnesota is all about enjoying life in flip flops, short sleeves, and taking in the skin-quenching heat of the sun as much as possible because after September it all changes, and I mean quick. However, there is something charming about the changing of seasons and the cooler weather ushered in by fall that creates a fresh excitement in the air.
When October rolls around, warm sweaters, new boots, and comfy jeans are all a part of our reality, but I will say, my favorite part of autumn is the flavors and foods of fall that make their debut on the culinary stage of life once again. Apple, ginger, pumpkin, and cinnamon are a few of the flavor highlights in my kitchen when the weather gets colder and one of my favorite “Warm me up” recipes for those cooler evenings is my Spiced Cider Martini. Made with Trader Joe’s Spicy Cider, a splash of Vodka and Triple Sec, a shake or two of coconut sugar and cinnamon and voila! – Insta warm in a glass. You can also include the kiddos in this recipe by leaving out the vodka and Triple Sec and adding a bit more cider.
Now, there is yet one more reason to be excited about fall! Cheers!
