The leaves are turning and falling, and the morning air is cold and crisp. It is the time to move from fruity tropical drinks to the flavors of fall. This whisky cocktail features a strong apple flavor that is perfect for sipping in the cold evenings.

This past weekend was perfect fall weather here in Seattle. If it wasn’t for well, a global pandemic, it would have been an absolutely perfect Halloween. The skies were completely clear and there was no rain in sight. Despite the clear skies, the temperature was still warm (for end of October in Seattle).
Sunday afternoon we headed to the zoo to take advantage of the remaining sunshine. We were obviously not the only people with this idea and it was much busier than past visits. We were still able to distance ourselves from other visitors (and everybody was great at proper mask wearing); however, we had to wait a while to see some of the more exciting animals.
Generally, I have shied away from whisky cocktails because it is such a strong flavor. Over the past few months I have discovered flavor combinations that I enjoy and have began to enjoy whisky cocktails.
I feel like whisky is a good fall and winter alcohol, so it is the perfect time to embrace the liquor and experiment with different drinks.
