Happy Halloween!

If I’m speaking honest, I’m not the biggest fan of this annual Holiday, but the sweet tooth in me loves any opportunity to overload my system with sugar. In case you’re in need of a last minute, festive cocktail to warm you up while you’re trick-or-treating with your kids or just to sip on over a fire with friends, this is the perfect one to set the mood!



2  apples
2 pears
1 orange
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar, or more to taste
1 cup bourbon
3 cups apple cider
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 bottles pinot grigio, chilled

Thinly slice fruit and mix in big bowl with lemon juice to prevent browning.  Add honey, brown sugar, bourbon, cider, and spice, stirring to combine. If you’re able, let it sit for a few hours to enhance the flavors. Top with pinot grigio and serve! [We prefer this warm for a cozy treat, but it’s just as refreshing chilled!]

Have any fun Halloween plans you’d like to share? Joining in on the Hanover Avenue fun in Richmond’s Fan District? Bonfire with cider and s’mores with friends? Or just walking door-to-door with your inevitably precious kids? We’d love for you to share!

  1. Fall is my least favorite soesan if I have to rank them. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like it. Pretty colors, crisp weather and the anticipation of SNOW! (Winter is my fave!) Here in Michigan we get all four soesans. I have lived other places that either didn’t get soesans or only somewhat. I find that I appreciate each one now and am thankful for God’s wisdom in ordering creation in that way.
