Bourbon Apple Cider Recipe

Happy Monday friends! We're one and a half week's out from Christmas Day, the school activities are a plenty, and the to do list doesn't seem to be shrinking as fast as we want it to. Our brains are running on caffeine and Christmas carols. 

And cocktails. 

'Tis the season! 

Today we have a yummy drink recipe for you because in the South bourbon makes everything better. From cocktail parties to surviving those long lines at the mall - this Bourbon Apple Cider will get you through. 

It's a holiday favorite just because it gives us a break from all things peppermint and cranberry. It's light enough to not make you feel like you're on a pure sugar rush - we like to save that feeling for the 9,398 holiday cookies we tend to consume from Thanksgiving to New Years. Yet it still has that winter bite to it that makes sharing it during the holidays the perfect holiday party drink. 

Or, you know, the perfect one to consume while wrapping that palette of presents that arrives daily from Amazon. We'll let you decide.
