Apple cider is a staple in my household during the winter months and, without a doubt, the most popular signature cocktail for fall and winter weddings. Cold evenings and a cidery punch just seem to go hand-in-hand, don’t you think?
So when this doozy of a recipe was gifted to us in a swag bag, I simply had to share. The recipe comes courtesy of Clementine Studio (who did the beautiful hand-painted designs shown above) for the HATCH event, a rad meetup event that celebrates creative female entrepreneurs.
I’ve already tested it out and let me just say, it’s basically winter in libation form. Full recipe after the jump. Cheers!
