Any great warm cocktail ideas for Halloween?  I was going to just mix apple cider, a little bit of oj and brandy or captain morgan in pot and heat- unless anyone has any cooler ideas.

  • I love these as the weather gets colder!

     Hot Apple Pie

    Tuaca is an orange and vanilla flavored liqueur, that legend has it was invented by Lorenzo de Medici during the Italian Renaissance. The following recipe creates a warming drink that smells just like apple pie.


    • 1 oz. Tuaca (an orange-vanilla flavored liqueur)
    • 5-6 oz. warm apple cider
    • whipped cream
    • cinnamon
    • nutmeg
    • cinnamon sticks


    Heat the apple cider. Pour into a coffee mug, adding Tuaca. Garnish with whipped cream, and sprinkle on cinnamon and nutmeg. Add a stick of cinnamon.


  • Take a look at the November issue of More magazine - they have a bunch of fun cocktail recipes.  Here are two that I thought sounded great for fall

    The Husband Keeper - Ingredients:  5 oz spiced rum, 2 oz light cream, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 4 tablespoons pumpkin spice rimming sugar and 2 cinnamon sticks.  Directions:  Combine rum, cream and vanilla extract in a shaker.  Shake for 1 minute.  Pour into glasses rimmed with the pumpkin spice sugar and garnish with cinnamon stick. 

    The 40-year-old-virgin - Ingredients: 8 cups water, 1 cup sugar, 6 bags orange pekoe tea, 1 cinnamon stick, 1 cup apple cider, 1 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup cranberry juice, alcohol of choice.  Directions: Bring water and sugar to boil.  Turn off heat and add tea bags and cinnamon stick.  Let steep for 8 minutes.  Remove tea bags.  Add juices and alcohol.  Can be served warm or chilled.
