Apple a Day

Back when I was a toddler, I had an addiction to apple juice. I would demand that my bottle be filled with my beverage of choice. However, my parents began to notice that there was a little more of me to love, so cut it out of my diet. Don’t worry, I found ways to satisfy my obsession. I manipulated my great-grandmother, who baby sat me, to sneak in the goods via an oversized purse. I would later use my manipulation skills for McDonald’s trips.

Now that I am an adult, I rarely drink apple juice nor prefer apple-flavored cocktails. However, now that it is apple season, a number of drink recipes are popping up. Enjoy!
