It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.
October marks the official beginning of pie season (at least by my calendar), and in case you’re looking for a new and inventive way to get your pie fix (aren’t we all?), look no further than Alie and Georgia’s creative Apple of My Pie cocktail.
This weirdly delicious concoction is made with apple brandy, cinnamon liqueur, and a whole thick wedge of streusel-topped apple pie. Buttery crust, fragrant filling and all gets blended with the booze until smooth and delicious. For a truly all-American experience, garnish with cheddar. It’s the perfect way to curb your pie cravings. Oh, and the best part? Eating the rest of the pie alongside your cocktail.
Bottoms up, folks.

In case you didn’t get enough pie for Thanksgiving, try consuming your pie in the form of a creamy, frothy shake. For Kelsey Nixon’s Apple Pie Shake, all you need is three simple ingredients: vanilla ice cream, milk, and a thick wedge of apple pie. Think of it as drinking your pie a la mode through a straw. The best part about this recipe is that you can switch up the flavor of ice cream or pie, depending on the season and your own preferences. How about some pumpkin pie with cinnamon ice cream for an inventive Turkey Day drink? Or might we suggest spiking this shake with brandy or smoky, smooth bourbon to curb your holiday stress?
Bottoms up, folks.

Apple lovers get ready: Our favorite fall fruit is now coming into season sooner than expected.
