It took me ten months to post a new recipe this year, and it’s an alcoholic one.  What does that say about me? 
Actually, this is my first alcoholic recipe that I have posted, and I have been dying to post it for a while now.  Having my medical setbacks has resulted in a serious lack of new content on the blog this year (see my VLOG for reference), but my husband and I have recently moved into a new house with a large kitchen and I have a few new recipes coming your way!

Nothing says “fall” like a sweet taste of apples and maple.  This paleo autumn harvest cocktail has both!  Making this cocktail made me feel like I was at a fancy bar ordering one of their signature drinks.  I felt like a mixologist!  This harvest cocktail was bright, crisp and tasty, with just the right amount of bite.  If you’ve been watching Wine Wednesday’s, you know that I usually go for a dry, red wine.  But this time I opted for a bright, fruity Prosecco to include in this fun drink.

Now, I know that alcohol is not technically paleo, but as far as ingredients go, these are the most paleo-approved.  As long as you are eating cleaning, drinking “cleaner” drinks in moderation is okay.  I live by the phrase “everything in moderation.”   Be sure to choose apple cider that is just pure apple cider, without added sugars, and pure maple syrup.   This recipe is for 2 servings, which is all I can fit into my cocktail shaker at a time.  I like making these fresh for people.  But you can increase the recipe if
