One of my favorite season is fall. The colors and flavors of fall are so warm and welcoming, and nothing warms my heart (and stomach) more than this delicious recipe. The soft caramel, oak, and vanilla notes of this Spiced Cider & Cran-Bourbon Cocktail linger in its depths and bounces perfectly off the earthy flavors of the sour cranberry, rich apple cider, and rosemary. Add this recipe to your favorite fall menu for a unique flavor you’ll relish all season long.
