Caramel-Apple Cider Cocktail

October ushers in a long season of varied holidays and reasons for gathering. Whether you’re hosting a football game—viewing gala or a Halloween blowout, it always helps to have a tasty cocktail (or mocktail) for the guests as soon as they arrive. This Caramel-Apple Cider is a fun play on the classic fall favorite and compliments many different finger foods. Pair this cider with anything from a simple plate of cheddar cheese slices and apple wedges to a platter of  Bacon-Wrapped Dates with Gorgonzola.
