Spiced Apple Rum Cocktail (aka Apple Pie in a glass)

Friday, September 19, 2014 6 0

I am a wine-lover. I may even go as far as to say wine snob. Or maybe wine-snob-in-training. A wonderful glass of red wine is my perfect Autumn drink. I’m a huge fan of Pinot Noir – perhaps because of the Pinot Noir festival J and I attended last summer where I tasted about 50 (no lie) Pinot Noirs from the Okanagan region and got educated! Except toward the end I was calling even a $50 bottle “standard delicious”… ;)

What I mean to say is that I don’t often drink cocktails in the cooler months. But I picked up a bunch of apples from the Farmer’s Market this week, and had visions of a spiced apple drink dancing in my head…

I looked at our liquor cabinet and googled around a bit and came up with this Spiced Apple Rum Cocktail. It’s apple pie in a glass. Literally. And it will probably save you a few calories too ;)

    These look lovely and slightly dangerous. Great flavor combination!

      Dangerous – but not as dangerous as a real apple pie ;)

    I’m not a big “drinker” but I may have to try this. A drink that tastes like “apple pie in a glass” sounds delicious!

      It’s definitely a yummy alternative to apple pie – it’s almost like a spiced apple cider but with a bit of alcohol. Try it and let me know!
