Fall was always my absolute favorite season. I mean, as a kid, summer won by default because there wasn’t any school, but the cooler weather and turning of the leaves–not to mention my birthday and the holidays right around the corner–always felt invigorating. Sometimes going back to school could feel invigorating, too. Getting to see friends every day, meeting my new classmates, trying out new clubs or sports… it wasn’t all bad! And when I started driving myself to school at 16, I’d often go out of my way for a nice hot Starbuck’s cider on the way in. (Or ask my boyfriend to bring me one.) Extra caramel, please. Phew, those things were sugary. I may not be able to indulge in that particular treat anymore, but curling up on the couch with a good book and hot mug of cider at the end of the day is still one of my favorite pastimes. Seriously, is there anything more comforting than a warm beverage on a cold day? This Pomegranate Cider is a fun twist on the traditional beverage, adding rich pomegranate juice to the mix!
