Honey Crisp Apple Old-Fashioned Cocktail

PUBLISHED ON: 10.22.2023

We had an amazing time in Greece and Turkey and as my friend poetically described “re-entry is tough.” Yes, ma’am, indeed. Our journey to Greece and Turkey is an upcoming post. Stay tuned.

Studying for my upcoming wine exam has been my priority and it has taken up a lot of prime real estate in my brain too.

In the meantime, It’s officially Fall.  Join me on the patio for a perfect fall weather cocktail. A classic Old-Fashioned with an extra twist of autumn. The apple pie simple syrup is a cinch to make, and the leftover apples are delicious over ice cream.
