Apple Delicious

Bring on the Fall
Apple Delicious

The best thing about Apples is that they are good with everything. They are delicious by themselves, fresh off the tree. Apple Pie feels like fall on Thanksgiving, but feels like American Independence with a scoop of ice cream on the 4th of July.

From stuffing to salads and pig roasts to turkey, apples are as diverse as they are delicious. So it only makes sense that Apple spirits are as well.

Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, Jim Beam and Evan Williams each have their apple line.

Effen Vodka out of Holland makes a fantastic green apple vodka. Smirnoff, and a few others also have their own line of apple vodka.

Of course, many of us are familiar with DeKuyper’s Apple Pucker! This is a staple in most Apple-Tini recipes.

Another drink that is popular and as delicious as it sounds is Apple Pie Moonshine. Midnight Moonshine and Sugarland’s Shine each make a really nice one.

Whether you’re a whiskey, vodka or moonshine kind of person, we hope you will enjoy the oldest recorded fruit in history and sip some apple this fall.


Pumpkin Spice and all that's nice

Bring on the Fall
Pumpkin Spice and all that

The fall has finally come to Texas! Time to get out the sweaters and the Pumpkin Spice.

Everything about pumpkins feels like fall doesn’t it? They make the perfect fall décor both carved, painted, or plain. And they are delicious – toasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin bread, pumpkin butter, and pumpkin pie!

Between soccer practice, gymnastics practice and a Fall Festival every weekend, it’s hard to find the time to bake. So instead, I plan to enjoy the pumpkin spice with a warm and relaxing mug of Pumpkin Spice Bailey’s and Coffee or a Pumpkin Pie Martini (on the October evenings that are in the 70s). 

Making the coffee is super easy – just pour yourself a half a cup of your favorite coffee (better to stay away from flavored coffee though) and then fill the cup up the rest of the way with Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice. If you want to get fancy you can even make some Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice whip cream for the top!

For the warmer evenings, I will be springing for the Pumpkin Pie Martini - another easy drink to make and oh, so, delicious. Mix 1.5 oz of Smirnoff or Burnett’s Whipped Cream Vodka, 1 oz of Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Liqueur and a half oz of Rum Chata. Shake and serve. For a little fancy sparkle – rim your glass with cinnamon sugar and sprinkle a little on top.


So let’s raise a glass to this cooler weather and sip a little Pumpkin Spice. October is busy enough – relax a little and save the Pumpkin baking until November. Let’s bring on the fall!
