This one’s for Mom!

Believe it or not, this week’s recipe was actually my Mom’s idea. She’d listened to our podcast episode 15 some time ago and bought herself a bottle of Tuaca. With the weather getting cold, she was determined to try the “Hot Apple Pie” cocktail that we’d mentioned.

So when Chris and I arrived at her house the evening before Thanksgiving, we were greeted with hugs, welcomes and a subtle hint: two bottles of Apple Cider and Tuaca. Thankfully, that’s all this super simple cocktail needs!


Make this drink as simply as you like – we made ours with just apple cider and Tuaca, but you can add garnish and / or whipped cream to make it more interesting. Personally, I like it just the way it is. Just fill a mug 3/4th’s full with Cider and add Tuaca to taste – then zap in the microwave until it’s as warm as you like it.  Really, you can hardly call it a “recipe” it’s so easy!
