Follow Me On…

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you…. In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself. ~Ruth Stout

Hot Tanqueray Cider

 

Or one savors belonging to the loved ones, all gathered near the fireplace creating a warm home; Conversations happen, stories are told, laughter is shared. There is an old world charm about winter. It makes you want to go home and curl up with a book and some hot cider or hot chocolate. Now if only all days in winter were vacation days, life would be perfect.

Tanqueray Cider

Well, I have good news and not so good news. The not so good news is that it’s a Monday today. The good News is that we have Hot Cider. Who says Monday blues can’t be beat?

It was our anniversary a couple of days ago and the Spice Guy made this for me after the Devilishly Dark Chocolate Cake was eaten and the rest of it put away. He can mix a mean drink and this one was no exception. So I just had to share the recipe to make the Hot Tanqueray Cider with his special addition of Grand Marnier  .
