boozy drinks apple pie moonshine recipe

This recipe comes to us from a friend of the blog’s ex-boyfriend. He may have been a pain in the ass but at least we got something good out of the relationship—this killer recipe. If you make the full batch, it yields 4.5 quarts so divide as needed or make a bunch and store for later.

Serve in a rocks glass like this one from Target or the beautiful Anthropologie version. Garnish with rosemary, cinnamon sticks, and cherries to give it a festive holiday look.

Michelle tried this one last year but after a tragic dental incident with clove-soaked gauze she now has to go sans-cloves all the time. Hence our clove-free version was born and she highly recommends adding bourbon. Lots of bourbon. Make it kid friendly by serving straight out of the crock pot and the adults can spike their glasses with the liquor of their choosing. The original recipe can be found here.

Serve in a simple glass mug and dress up with rosemary, cinnamon stick and an orange wheel for garnish.

boozy drinks apple pie sparkle recipe

Part brandy, part sparkling apple cider, this drink is the perfect fizzy meets sophistication. The recipe comes from Watershed Distillery out of Columbus, Ohio and was the perfect companion to Michelle and Hannah’s Cleveland blogger meet up last week.

If you like boba tea this one if for you. The pomegranate seeds add a fun texture and the the sparkling cider gives it just enough fizz.

boozy drinks mulled wine recipe

Mulled wine is one of those drinks that really feels like the holidays. Hannah made this Food Network recipe to drink while handing out candy on Halloween. It was delicious and festive but could have stood a little more booze. You can find the original recipe here, but if you’re looking to kick things up a notch we recommend adding some liquor of your choice.

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
