We’ve been getting hit with several recipe ideas to share for fall, so we figured we’d pass them along as an alternative to all of the pumpkin stuff that seems to be quite the craze this time of year. Enjoy!

2 oz Espolon Reposado
1 oz cinnamon syrup
.5 oz fresh lemon
2 dashes Tabasco
4 oz spiced apple cider
Stir ingredients together and add Tabasco to taste (note: the recipe calls for 2 dashes, but we added a bit more for extra kick).

Fill a low ball or rocks glass with ice. Add each ingredient and stir until the cream is mixed. Serve with a plate of cookies if desired.
