Always too eager for the future, we pick up bad habits of expectancy. Something is always approaching; every day, till then we say.

A spirited toast to all things alcoholic!  By Leslie Dinaberg

Saturday November 18 is National Apple Cider Day. In honor of this auspicious holiday, we’ve got a tasty recipe for Ginger Whiskey Cider, courtesy of Brooklyn Crafted Ginger Beer.

I’m a big fan on using this new super spicy ginger beer in Moscow Mules—and they have a sugar free version—but it’s also a great compliment for cider. Check it out and let me know what you think.
