Ginger Apple Cider

October 3rd, 2014

Somehow, October decided it was ready to arrive this week, even though I’m still not sure how August snuck past. ‘Tis life these days, but I might as well embrace the calendar and thus the changing seasons. Although, living in San Francisco, that can be a bit tough since July tends to be one of the cooler months of the year and now, in October, when most of the country is pulling out their sweaters, we’re opening every window and desperately de-layering. It could be worse, I know. Luckily, I found a drink that is equally as delicious cold as it is warm, so no matter where you live, you can enjoy this ginger apple cider at the perfect temperature.

Inspired by a beverage I had at Outerlands this week, mulled apple cider is paired with a squeeze of lemon, bourbon, SNAP!, and topped off with ginger ale. It’s just as comforting as it is refreshing… and it’s an easy sip—before you know it, it’ll be gone and it’ll be December. Ahhh. Luckily, you can make it again and again.

    Aw, this was a very good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole
    lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

    Much of our health is determined by the way we live our
    lives, and nutrition choices are a huge part of that equation. You
    can be relaxed just by consuming food and drinks.
    If you wish to get the highest possible concentration of antioxidants, pure
    cocoa beans, or cocoa supplements can be purchased for
    an affordable price.

    When someone writes an post he/she maintains the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
    Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is outstdanding.
