Autumn is a great time of year and this one was particularly lovely. The weather was actually fall like and we didn’t have early snow either! We thought it would be fun to showcase drinks that had apple in them since pumpkin gets all the airtime. Also, since there is an upcoming holiday, instead of doing one drink we selected three. We continue to have some technical issues, so this video is from our camera and we aren’t looking into it – but it is the best version. As always, if you try any of the drinks do let us know what you think of them. Remember to drink responsibly and get into the spirit of things! Happy Autumn and Happy Thanksgiving!
