Whether you like it hot or chilled, this drink is fall’s greatest comfort.

Pumpkin tends to steal the spotlight when it comes to fall flavors, so I propose we shift the focus to apple. Sipping on apple cider is one of the best things about autumn, and it’s perfect for New Orleans weather – in September, you can sip it over ice for a refreshing treat, and when the cold kicks in around late October, you can heat it up over the stove, filling your home with its enticing, comforting aroma. For extra warmth, spike it with a little rum or whiskey. Maybe you’ll even supplement it with pumpkin pie (on the side, of course).
