YUMMY! Thanks to Jean Marie Manning we have a great way to toast the start of the weekend. The savvy restaurant consultant has created a gorgeous drink that incorporates lots of wonderful seasonal notes- apples, vanilla, and warm-yourself-by-the-fireplace chai tea. Trust us, you’re going to love this one!
Jean Marie tells us we can pre-make and batch this lovely cocktail for parties. It’s perfect for Sunday’s game! Pour it into your favorite pitcher and put aside ice and lime for guests to serve at their own delight; absolutely delicious!
