There’s something comforting about the flavors of fall–pumpkins, apples, cinnamon, nuts. This is the time of year when the air gets a little more brisk, and the desire to hibernate gets a little stronger. September is National Hazelnut Month, which for me means it time to break out the mock turtleneck and two of my favorite liquors, Frangelico and Diep 9 Apple. Try this sweet, velvety cocktail at home.  It’s perfect for pairing with any meal, even with Cinnamon Toast Crunch in the morning).

1½ oz Diep 9 Apple infused genever
