FRIDAY FAVORITES.....FALL EDITION


We officially ushered in Fall this week and with it came the crisp morning air and the cravings for all things Apple, Pumpkin, and Football! I finally feel like I can wear my riding boots with confidence and decorate the porch with mums, scarecrows and pumpkins. A few hints of orange-ish hues are in the trees and when a leaf crunches beneath my feet, I smile! I hope your weekend is filled with lots of smiles!!!

1. APPLE PIE PUNCH & CARAMEL APPLE BARS
 Apples in all there glory to make this:

  • 1 apple, chopped or sliced
  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 2 cups pear nectar
  • 24 ounces ginger ale
  • Apple pie vodka (optional) and One brand is Pearl. 
  • *If you can't find Apple Pie Vodka, Caramel Vodka is also delicious in this drink!

  • Combine apple cider, pear nectar, and ginger ale. Stir well. Place apple slices inside pitcher.
  • Pour over ice and serve! If you're wanting to serve it warm, heat all of the liquid ingredients in a pot over a stove on low heat. Simmer for a few minutes until warm, place apple slices in the pot, and serve in mugs.
  • *If you're craving an alcoholic drink, add one shot (1.5 ounces) apple pie vodka to each individual drink, or 1 - 1½ cup to entire pitcher
  •  
  • CARAMEL APPLE CHEESECAKE BARS
