Chilled Cider Punch

Chilled Cider Punch - Hero

Today’s interlude is brought to you not by Jerry Thomas, but by the New Year’s Eve party I made this for. This is a (very tasty) recipe, modified in this particular occasion, from Saveur magazine, presented below. I’ve made this a few times now, though, and it’s always a hit. A little dangerous alcohol-wise, and addictive, but hey, it (was) New Year’s Eve. Might as well!

For those of you in the northeast, be warned! Your houses are about to be chilled again with a “one-two punch” (their words, not mine, so it’s okay) of more bad weather this weekend. It’s times like these I really miss being back home. Which is weird, I know, but it’s just how I am. Will hopefully be up in the snowy California mountains soon, which is almost as good. Anyways, wait out the storm with a hot cider and then you’ve got all three words in one blurb! I mean… a good drink. Both.

A Toast!

Cheers!

2016 was probably not the best year. A lot of bad stuff happened, but there was a lot of good stuff too.

I, for one, managed to churn out more than my goal of 52 posts, so that was fun for me — and hopefully for you too. I learned more about how to make drinks, what to do and what not to do, and what flavors or combinations are probably best left in the 1800s.

So, on to the next one. Here’s to the year that passed, the year that is coming, and that each one will always be better than the last.

Happy New Year!
