Christmas is greatest time of the year: colorful lights, Christmas trees, and friends. There’s lots of drinks that remind me of Christmas, but recently, I tried Christmas in a Cup. This drink embodies the holidays as much as any other out there. It’s hard to put my finger on the exact combination of flavors that evoke thoughts of Christmas; there’s a complex spiciness to this cocktail. Christmas in a Cup isn’t like any other holiday drink that comes to mind.

Halloween is near, and revelers everywhere are looking for appropriate drinks to celebrate with. Recently, I discovered a tasty cinnamon flavored drink called the Flaming Pumpkin Pie.

Recently, I was scouring the Internet for recipes for Apple Pie Cocktail, or at least something similar. There turned out to be a ton of drink recipes that were nothing at all alike. Before I finally came up with a concoction that satisfied my original quest, I started experimenting with some of the liquors and mixers I had compiled into a list of potential ingredients. What I accidentally came up with is a brand new drink that I am now dubbing the Sacramento Cider. This mixed drink tastes just like an alcoholic version of mulled cider, and I’m excited to share our Sacramento Cider recipe with you today.
