I am currently looking out the window at some cloudy skies with my little space heater blasting, a pup curled up at my desk chair, and lots of layers. All I can think about is how happy I am that it is finally cool outside!

Thankfully I am lucky enough to not have a long commute to work – it’s only from my bedroom to my home office, after all 😉 I think that is why I appreciate the cooler weather so much more. Now, I don’t actually have to be IN it, but I get to reap the benefits of snuggling up and feeling all cozy all day long.

Should I stop bragging before you start throwing tomatoes or something at me?

ANYWAYS, one of the rewards on a chilly day is when I officially reach cocktail hour. Once I’ve done my workout, gotten cleaned up, finished the dishes and started on dinner, it’s time for a proper cocktail.

Ok, so you all know that I made this INSANE Apple Pie Infused Whiskey last week, and now I am going to show you how to use it!

I love the apple pie infused whiskey because it truly comes through in the cocktail, and it makes it easy to create. Heck, you only need two ingredients for this drink.

If that’s not the epitome of simple, I don’t know what is. 

It’s hard to believe that this flavorful drink only takes two ingredients to make. Of course, a lot of that flavor is because of the apple pie infused whiskey that you absolutely HAVE to make this fall.

The flavors of apple pie come through in the cinnamon, clove, and apple-y notes that flow through the infused whiskey. Along with a dash of the bitters flavor, you get a slightly sweet, spirit-forward cocktail. Trust me when I say that you won’t want to stop sipping on. Instead of needing to add in simple syrup, there’s a small amount of sweetener in the infused whiskey. That along with the natural sweetness of the apples gives you just enough to cut through the strength of the alcohol.

Now my mouth is watering yet again…
