This recipe, from Emily, for a hot, sweet vanilla cocktail, sounds like aprés heaven. There are quite a few things worth being outside at night for during the fall and winter months. Cider is the epitome of fall, and hard cider is making a big comeback right now. While trying to decide which overwhelmingly sweet flavored alcohol I was going to buy a whole bottle of, I realized they make airplane bottles of most of the flavors! I narrowed my experimentation down to five, and landed on vanilla vodka as the best choice for this cocktail.
