Drink of the Week: Cider Rum Punch

November 7, 2011 No Comments by Nicole

Daylight savings started yesterday (for those of you that change your clocks :) ) and with it comes new feelings of fall and the approaching holidays! I love November for many reasons but the biggest is that I get to stuff my face all month long. I think this drink would be the perfect addition to any Thanksgiving feast and would make a great signature drink for your late fall or early winter reception. It will leave you with that great warm and fuzzy feeling.
