You guys, it’s the last week of November and in, like, 2 days it’s going to be December! Where did the year go?!?
I hate that getting older makes it feel like the years are going by faster. But when you’re a kid the years go by super slow. Why can’t it be the other way around?!
But I digress…
To cope with this revelation I am having, and usually end up having every year when the new year looms around the corner, I made a new cocktail.
Apple Pie is my absolute favorite dessert. So why no make it into a yummy apple pie cocktail that I can enjoy?
My sweet tooth is strong during the holidays and I seriously want to eat all the desserts. Especially now that I just had a baby and I’m still trying to reel in my not-so-great eating habits that happened while I was pregnant.
This cocktail is perfect for a little after dinner treat but without having to make or eat a slice of apple pie.
Or you can eat the pie and enjoy the cocktail…. I won’t judge, hehe. Because that might have been what I did.
