ginger + apple cider cocktail

November 1st, 2013

Hellloooo happy hour! Oh how I have missed you! This week has been such a lovely week—I happily sent off Issue 13 of Remedy Quarterly to editing (what a relief!), took Claire and Maude out for their first Halloween stroll, and made this delicious cocktail! It’s perfect for fall and easily made into a non-boozy cocktail, which, when I was pregnant, I swore to myself I would be more mindful of (there are not enough delicious, non-boozy concoctions out there! Or, at least people who know how to make them).

Before I scoot away to get my day going, I wanted to say thank you. This year has taught me so much, I think the biggest lesson of all is to be thankful and mindful of small things. I’m so appreciative to have a place to share my ideas and people who actually look at them. You guys are the best!

Cheers! To big and small accomplishments, delicious drinks, and the weekend!
