I live in Austin, Texas, but am from Tennessee. I often miss the mountains, fall colors, and apple orchards from TN, but it’s still too dang hot in Austin to enjoy hot apple cider. Instead, I wanted a drink that felt transitional; it’s still refreshing and goes down easy because of the ginger beer, but the barrel-aged coffee and the bourbon bring it back into something more warming. It makes me think I’m on a back-patio, looking at the mountains and waiting for a brisk wind and thunderstorm.
