Oh, yes it is fall! You can feel it in the air and see it in nature.
We all have a favorite version of that famous coffee house creation. Here is a one that you may not have tried. Start by freezing some nice strong coffee in large ice cube trays. When frozen, pop out and store in a zip lock bag in the freezer. This is a great use of leftover coffee, and is a delicious addition to your iced mocha as well.
The rest of the assembly could not be easier.
This is a perfect after dinner drink to serve with some tiny caramel dipped apple balls. Use a melon baller to scoop out a large, firm apple. Dip in caramel and roll in chopped nuts or sprinkles. Serve on a cocktail pick or mini fork.
Or as a cocktail party selection, try a pre-cooked turkey meatball glazed in a mixture of spicy brown mustard and pumpkin butter. The pumpkin biscuit is easily made by adding a 1/2 cup of pureed pumpkin to your favorite biscuit recipe or mix.
The Pumpkin Spice Kahlua is only available for a limited time as a seasonal selection, so stock up. Or feel free to substitute your favorite pumpkin liqueur.
This is a refreshing cold drink that will warm you up on a chilly fall day.
