It finally feels like fall in New York. Today was cool and crisp and bright and airy and refreshing. There was a welcome chill in the air--I actually curled up with my coffee and a buffalo-print blanket this morning (you know, for five seconds, before the kids NEEDED me). I wore a sweatshirt out and about during the day. I drank a PSL for my 4 PM pick-me-up. I even broke out the flannel PJs for bedtime. It's the most wonderful time of the year... early autumn!
Tonight, once the littles are in bed, I plan on snuggling on the couch in those aforementioned jammy james with an autumn-inspired spiked sipper or two. This one has a seriously festive kick (and that's not just all the cinnamon and pumpkin spice talking).
This unique cocktail creation is made with Mastiha, a unique liqueur featuring the flavors of cucumber, pine, anise, and fresh herbs. It's a great aperitif when served chilled neat, on the rocks, or mixed in an array of different drinks... like this fall-ready recipe!
3 oz. Fos Mastiha
3 oz. apple cider
Splash of fresh lemon juice
Garnish with 1 apple slice and cinnamon stick
