Our Harvest Moon experience at Windham Mountain

It’s not often that Grumpy and I go out on an actual date. However, this year we celebrated my birthday early during the Harvest Moon at Windham Mountain. We celebrated the oncoming fall in style and saw the beautiful harvest moon from the mountaintop. After drinks and appetizers, we went back down the Skyride to the lodge where Chef Arquette served us a delicious 5-course meal. This was an experience that we both will remember and look forward to doing again!

At the beginning of our evening, while at the top of the mountain enjoying our charcuterie board, we were also offered other libations of our choice. I was quite chilly, so to warm up, my choice for the evening was Hot Fireball Apple Cider. And, I loved it so much I decided I had to share this yummy hot toddy with all of my readers!

How to make Hot Fireball Apple Cider

The recipe is straightforward! Basically to make this Hot Fireball Apple Cider you need about 6 ounces hot cider and 1-1/2 -2 ounces of Fireball Whisky.

I used my Princess House Footed Irish Coffee Mug for serving my Fireball Apple Cider beverage in. I just love the footed mugs, they are pretty and makes me feel like I’m serving a fancy drink! They are not necessary, but many people mention that they love the mugs. The Princess House ones are quite expensive, but there are many mugs you can find on Amazon that are footed and work just as nicely! One example is the Arc International Irish Footed mug. You get a set of for for a far more reasonable price!

I think everyone would agree that doughnuts are probably one of the best things to serve with a Hot Fireball Apple Cider! After all, this is a beverage you usually see in the fall. And, doughnuts are often paired with cider to start. My very favorite doughnut is my Mom’s recipe for Buttermilk Doughnuts or Apple Cider Glazed Doughnuts.
