A Cocktail To Celebrate Autumn

Happy Fall everyone! It's here. One of the most wonderful times of the year.


So while you're getting those boots, scarves and jackets out, treat yourself to a little autumn spirit. Perfect for long, snugly evenings and some much needed down time with friends and loved ones.


I think Autumn Spice is the perfect blend of ginger and cider with a hint of lemon. They are pretty lightweight, meaning you can sip them all day or night. (Or add in a bit of bourbon for a little more kick.)
This can be served hot or cold or you can even make a non-alcoholic version for the little ones by swapping out the Domaine de Canton for a little ginger-honey syrup.


Honey-Ginger Syrup
Add 1 cup honey and 1 cup water to a saucepan and bring to boil. 
Remove from heat and stir in 3 tablespoons chopped ginger. Let cool.
Strain out ginger and chill.

I'm pretty obsessed with all things ginger and Domaine de Canton is a standby in our house. This cocktail recipe and many more can be found on their site.
