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

Whipped cream
Pinch cinnamon and nutmeg

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.

This mulled wine tastes just like the kind my mama used to make. Now don't forget the ladle, and you're ready to enjoy this centuries-old delight.

I often forget to add fabric softener. Maybe if I made my own it will be a way for me to remember to add it to my load.
