Cocktail Hour | Hot Apple Cider Rum Punch

Oh heeey guess what. It’s going to snow this weekend. Again. For the THIRD time this week. Seriously. I got nothin’ else for ya folks – it’s going to snow and I am about ready to just give up on life and move to Alaska. I bet there’s less snow there.

So in between shoveling and defrosting, whip yourself up one of these toasty and delicious drinks. You’re welcome.
