Two tasty fall drinks

spiced bourbon ciderThis morning, I was perusing City That Breeds, a lovely local blog about drinks, nachos and whatnot, when I came upon this delicious post about fall drinks.

Look at this picture. It's a spiced bourbon and cider. My goodness, that looks amazing. A real person -- not a bartender -- made that drink. Can you believe it?

I took a gander at both recipes on the post, and before I even realized it, I was licking my computer screen.

I. Want. That.

The hardest part to all this seems to be the spicing of the bourbon. It involves cheesecloth and various ingredients such as nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. I have those in my cupboard. But making homemade spiced bourbon also requires patience -- about seven days of soakage -- and I am not a patient man.

Boy oh boy do these drinks sound tasty, though.

How about Woodberry Kitchen's (The WBK Broiler) "Headless Horseman"?

Headless Horseman -- Maker’s Mark bourbon, spiced pumpkin syrup, citrus, copper mug

With this year's pumpkin shortage in Maryland, you feel even cooler drinking these.....totally awesome...had 2 of them on Tuesday night..

Sam you should do a specialty cocktail-off for amateur mixologists once the Midnight Sun social gets off the ground.

That is entirely the work of our new boozologist (and classically trained photographer) Pat. He's going to be a regular round Ye Olde City That Breeds.

Thanks for the props!
