Every fall, people go to apple orchards, dress in trendy sweaters, and purchase a decent pair of brown boots. Soon, the buzz begins about “pumpkin spice” and cider. While the fall season is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the weather, I struggle to find new drink options to fit the cozy, colorful mood of the season. If you have had enough of plain old cider, read below to discover drink recipes that will bring joy to your taste buds!
