Rumor has it...it's the 10th of November. What?? Onto fall cocktails (which I think are fun!). I was sent a couple bottles of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple and Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple. I have never tried the Cinnful Apple before and was pleasantly surprised! Along with my samples were a few cocktail recipes which I am excited about, especially this one because it has Cholula Hot Sauce in it! Yes you heard me right.......Cholula Hot Sauce!! Between the Cinnamon flavor in the Angry Orchard and the hot sauce, this should be a spicy cocktail.
You know what else is a staple in this house in the fall (besides delicious cocktails), people getting sick. 4 of 4 was the first, me the second and now 2 of 4 and 3 of 4 have tag teamed and are both sick. Poor things! I'm happy tomorrow is a holiday so that they can get even more rest.
Let me tell you a little bit about this cocktail:
At first sip it's cool and refreshing, which was sort of surprising to me as all I could think about was the cinnamon and hot sauce flavors. After a minute the cinnamon flavor kicked it which was nice and after another minute or so came the hot sauce flavor and heat. How fun to get all of that in each sip of this cocktail. You can even see the hot sauce floating around in there.
All in all I really enjoyed making and drinking this cocktail! I look forward to making another recipe that I was given as well!
I want to wish all of the Veterans out there a very Happy Veterans Day tomorrow! Make sure you get all of your FREE stuff you deserve!
