Hot Apple Cider Blast Cocktail

Photograph by Daniel Montoya

It's officially fall and the markets (thankfully) are overflowing with apples. And while we're gleefully baking ourselves silly and drinking warm apple cider at every opportunity, we couldn't help but pause when we discovered UV Salty Caramel Apple vodka and thought, "how great would this taste in our usual go-to mug of cider?" Available for a limited-time, this treat tastes like a caramel apple lollipop—with a grown-up twist. Ideal for a fall evening or a cold-weather tailgate, simply add cinnamon sticks and sliced apples as a garnish. Just make sure to choose apple cider, not apple juice.
