When fall arrives, it's time to give my beloved Sangria a rest. While I don't think there's ever a bad time for a good sangria, my taste buds yearn for something a little more substantial in the fall. Similar to Autumn food recipes, Autumn cocktails make me want to nest in my cozy house. I want something to sip, something that brings comfort, and something that warms the cockles of my heart.

Maybe this general malaise we feel is rooted in the noise of our lives: running from one activity to another, juggling work, another late night at the rink, pasta sauce that’s exploded on the stove again thanks to a grade 7 math emergency, the phone glued to our hips…it all equals get me out of here.
