There's no better way to bask in the holiday season than using the best produce of the season. Crisp apples and pomegranates are delicious on their own, but even more satisfying in a refreshing or body-warming cocktail.

Make your evening complete by whipping up a mug of Appleton Estate's Hot Buttered Cider or a glass of PAMA's Champagne Dreams, and enjoy! 

Hot Buttered Cider

1.5 oz. Spiced rum 
2-3 oz. Unfiltered apple cider
1 Tbsp. butter
Garnish: grated nutmeg

Steam until butter dissolves, mix and serve in a festive mug.
