VeeV Spiked Apple Cider


It’s finally starting to feel like Fall here! The wind is blowing, the sky is clear and I’m ready for a warm Fall cocktail! A perfect combination is apple cider and VeeV Açaí Spirit. This is the last Friday of Vegan MoFo 2013 and I’m a little sad so I’m going to curl up with this warm cozy drink and reflect on the past month.

It has definitely been a challenge to come up with cheap gluten-free meals every week but it has pushed my boundaries in the kitchen and for that I’m grateful. I feel I have grown in my cooking creativity but I have also been able to hone in on what I want for this blog and that gives me a clear goal to strive for. Thank you MoFo!

Moving beyond personal achievements, I have discovered so many fantastic new blogs! My blog roll is now packed with sites that I will continue to follow long after MoFo is over. Knowing there are so many different vegan blogs in the world makes me feel like part of a happy online community, which gives me the warm fuzzies (and that’s not just from the alcohol).

Let’s talk about math. My theme required me to do way more math than I am comfortable with, so I will most likely not be continuing to calculate all of the meals I post. Maybe only certain ones sometimes…how’s that for ambiguity?!

So let’s get to the booze. This is a super simple yet incredibly tasty and comforting cocktail. The kind you want to sip while sitting in front of a fire or watching a really cheesy Lifetime movie (don’t try to act like you don’t watch those). It’s spicy and sweet and I swear it will warm your soul.

You can make your own apple cider using organic apple juice, cinnamon, all spice, cloves and a little bit of orange juice. Ooorrr you can be lazy like me and take advantage of Trader Joe’s pre-made variety (doesn’t have to be TJs, there are lots of other brands out there). Add VeeV, a cinnamon stick and some fresh orange slices and you’re set. Mmmmm.
