Happy Hour: Welcome Fall

Sep 10, 2010

Boy, did the weather get chilly quick.  One minute, I’m wiping sweat from my brow in the 90 degree heat and the next, I’m bundling up against a frigid wind.  And what says, “I’m desperate to stay warm, but want to look chic,” like camel?

And since it’s Fall, we might as well embrace one of the season’s classic flavors: Apple. 

My favorite apple flavored beverage is sparkling cider, but a close second is Calvados Brandy which tastes like Fall in a glass.  If you haven’t tried it, you need to.
