I have to credit this idea from a drink I had at the Dogfish Head Brew Pub in Delaware. It was a dreary and cold day, and I not only wanted something to warm me up, but I also wanted to take advantage of my kid free afternoon with an adult beverage. Enter the cinnamon infused vodka apple cider. Yep, you read that right. And yes, it is as good as it sounds.
Upon returning home I thought I would give it a try. I infused my own vodka by simply placing three cinnamon sticks in a bottle and letting it set for a week, shaking it at least once a day. I then placed a good portion (the holidays are the time to indulge, right?) in a mug and topped it with freshly brewed cider.
Needless to say, after a warm cup of this concoction I am feeling the holiday spirit once again. Of course, I won't say it has improved my wrapping skills. Its the thought that counts anyway, right? Oh well, cheers everyone!
