Hot Cocktails from @Rekorderlig Cider

After a full week of cold and polar vortex, what can be more appropriate than a hot winter cocktail recipe?

Check this out – the Rekorderlig Pear, a fourth generation Swedish cider that just launched stateside. It’s delightfully crisp and balanced on its own when served chilled, but the Winter Fire cocktail is a careful blend that yields a perfectly complex hot drink. If you are not familiar with ciders like Strongbow or cider drinks, you are really in for a treat! They can also be poured with Guinness to create a cool Black and Tan drink.

Heat it up and serve, keep the ginger floating in the glass.

We love candy

My absolute favorite combination on a hot summer day is chocolate ice cream and gummy frogs. When the ice cream melts, it looks like they are swimming in mud. Screen Shot 2014-01-12 at 11.32.56 AM

At $3.99, they’re a great way to infuse a little fun and levity into an otherwise “hairy” situation. Stock up for those coiffing catastrophe, give them to your follicly-challenged friends,– you could even send one to Donald Trump or others dealing “do” disasters.
