Kentucky Mulled Cider
1.25 oz of your favorite bourbon
Hot apple cider
Dash of allspice
Tall cinnamon stick
Add bourbon to a mug. Fill mug with hot apple cider and dash of allspice. Garnish with tall cinnamon stick and lemon slice.
Warm Pumpkin Spice Drink
1 cup whole milk, heated until very warm
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Whipped cream, optional
Place all ingredients in blender. Remove center cap from the lid of the blender and use a folded kitchen towel to loosely hold the cap over the hole in a manner that steam can escape. Turn on the blender to low and then increase it to high. Blend ingredients until frothy. Transfer mixture to a mug, top with whipped cream, if desired, and sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.
Fresh Cranberry Cocktail
1/4 cup cranberries
1 1/2 ounces vodka (or bourbon)
5 small mint leaves
1 medium lime (1 wedge)
1 teaspoon sugar
Place cranberries, mint, lime, and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Using a muddling stick (or the back of a tablespoon), muddle the mixture until the cranberries are slightly crushed and the mint is bruised. Add ice and shake for approximately 10 seconds. Place the mixture into a rocks glass with ice and add ginger ale. You can add fresh mint leaves as a garnish.
