Pssst. The weather is whispering a reminder that we're about to be in the best two months of the year. It's officially fall, and to celebrate the season of apples, pumpkins and all things spiced, we've made a cocktail that tastes like apple pie and cognac's love child. Get your jean jackets out of the closet, ignore your anxiety about the looming winter and raise a glass of autumnal bliss.
