Two tasty fall drinks
This 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.
