I adore the warmth and tart-sweetiness of a good apple cider! I can't think of many better moments in life than to sit on the deck, wrapped in a blanket, a warm cider in hand, watching the leaves fall and the geese heading south. I know that sounds a bit overboard - but I like it better than spring rain and summer flowers. (Although sunshine on fresh snow comes very close!) So I was thrilled to combine fall colors and apple cider.
