I’m the type of girl that likes her whiskey straight up. Don’t give me a vodka cran or a cosmo, I’ll take a bourbon on the rocks. So needless to say, it surprised me that I liked this drink so much. I wanted to make a drink that would not only taste yummy, but warm ya up on these chilly fall nights. I’ve been sipping this warm maple bourbon apple cider since the first day of fall and I swear it gets better every time I make it.
