Positively Warm Apple Pie
Like your apple pie warm? While in Positano, Italy, my good friend Arturo introduced me to this great holiday cocktail that uses Tuaca, a delicious Italian liqueur made with citrus peels, spice and vanilla.
Single Serve

6 oz. apple cider (heated)
2 oz. Tuaca liqueur
Whipped cream

In a glass coffee mug or heat-resistant goblet, combine your heated cider and Tuaca. Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Add cinnamon stick.
