Share the Season: Hot Apple Cider

Share the Season: Hot Apple Cider

Nothing says fall like the smell of hot cider wafting through your home or the warmth you feel after a really good conversation with a friend.

My friends at Eaves by Avalon invited me over to their space to share our thoughts on their inspiring holiday campaign: Share the Season. I knew instantly our post would involve hot apple cider.

Spend some time chatting with the ones you love over a glass of hot apple cider #sharetheseason

We’ve been perfecting our recipe for years, starting in Germany — home of Gluhwein (like cider but with red wine instead) and ending here in Texas. It tastes pretty much perfect to me and I think my kids agree.

When Happy got home from school yesterday he could barely contain himself, the familiar scent catching in his nose the moment he opened the door.

I won’t claim this is THE very best cider in the world, but that’s what “all the young folks” around here are saying …

He threw his arms around my waist and started thanking me before he even saw the stove,

“Thank you Mama”, he said.

“This is just what we needed after a long day at school. You make the very best cider in the world!”

Melts this mama’s heart!
