*I have the most delicious apple hazelnut cocktail to share with you today!*
I’ve always known what a privilege is to call the Willamette Valley home. I mean, this place is truly beautiful. Rolling hills of farmland and vineyards with a river winding it’s way through the landscape. And I’m not saying that we really need anyone from the ‘outside’ confirming what we already know.
And while there is beauty here in every season. In the fall? Well, in the fall it just glows. It seems like we always hear about the colors of Autumn on the east coast but my friends, Oregon in October is a force to be reckoned with.
Warm golds and oranges, deep reds that make the trees look like they are on fire against a bright blue sky. And everywhere is evidence of the season of harvest.
So, I decided to create a little concoction dedicated to Autumn in Oregon. It’s a celebration of the season in a glass.
Apple Hazelnut Cocktail
It took me many years to actually call myself an Oregonian. I’ve spent the last 17 years here so I think I more than qualify now. 😉
And after moving around for most of my growing up years, there is something so wonderful, so grounding, about finally feel settled.
To know that I’m home.
You’ll have to let me know if you try this recipe!
And, as always, thanks for meeting me here today at the fence,
