the chill is in the air and Fall is almost here. As much as i LOVE Summer, I sure do love Fall… gorgeous orange, red and yellow colored falling leaves, pumpkin picking, trick or treating, haunted houses, hay rides, out-door fire pits and of coarse all the Fall festive Foods and Drinks. Here’s a toast to the beginning of a wonderful Fall Season.

this cocktail is Super Fresh, made from Freshly pureed granny smith apples. It totally makes the drink. If you have a fruit/vegetable juicer, it’ll work perfect for this recipe; otherwise, the food processor works great too. And in a pinch, you can substitute for apple cider as a short cut.

the fresh tartness from the apple juice paired with each salty, nutty, sweet caramely sip, as you work your way around the glass.. will trick you into thinking your actually eating a caramel apple.. in liquid form of coarse.

    You mentioned the apples could be substituted with apple cider. How much apple cider should I use? Can’t wait to try this recipe.

      You can substitute for the same amount but please keep in mind, the freshly squeezed apple makes it taste sooo “Fresh”. I hope you enjoy:)
