I'm having a bit of an identity crisis right now...Part of me wants fall to get here already, while the other part of me doesn't really want to let go of summer. Luckily, fall is almost here, but I still have a few weeks left to revel in the magic of summertime. Now even though I'm still rockin' summer outfits and enjoying the balmy weather, that doesn't mean I'm not already indulging in fall inspired recipes. I'm bonkers for anything apple related...especially apple flavored cocktails!

You can pair it with everything from sparkling wine to rum and even bourbon...which brings me to today's featured cocktail. I'm not much of a bourbon drinker myself, but my hubs enjoys a nip every now and again and it's a great thing to have on hand for fall get togethers. So, I do usually have a bottle in my liquor cabinet.
