The weather is changing and instead of finding cocktails that refresh you after a long hot day we have to start thinking about the cocktails that warm you up from the inside. I have found some great winter cocktail recipes that include a new favorite liqueur of ours called TUACA.
TUACA is a vanilla citrus liqueur 500 years in the making. TUACA captures the essence of its Italian roots. TUACA began as a legendary liqueur created for Lorenzo de Medici, ruler of Florence and visionary benefactor of renaissance art and architecture. The recipe was rediscovered in 1938, when brothers-in law Gaetano Tuoni and Giorgio Canepa recreated the spirit and gave it a new name- TUACA. American servicemen drank TUACA in Italy during WWII and brought TUACA home to the U.S., introducing the liqueur to an entire new generation of adventurers!
TUACA is 100% natural. The TUACA creation process begins with the selection of the finest Italian brandy, ranging from 3 to 10 years old. The Italian brandy is then blended with natural sugar, fine spirits and a touch of citrus and vanilla essences.

What a delicious adult beverage! I can't wait to try this.
The hot apple pie sounds like my kind of cocktail. Perfect for this chilly weather in fall and winter.

Holy cow that looks good. And we have that penguin mug! My husband loves ginger beer and I love whipped cream. The hot apple pie is amazing.

Uhhhh…Yes! I'd love to try this and I've never heard of mule or that a special copper cup is needed. I love real ginger beer so this sounds like something right up my alley 🙂
That look so yummy! With school back in session, I'm needing a little help winding down in the evenings and this cocktail sounds just perfect!

Wow wow! I need to make some of these for the family. They look so delicious! I'd have to go with the hot apple pie cocktail on a cold day. The mule cocktail would be perfect for a Fall friday.
Oh, I think I'd love the flavor of a citrusy vanilla liquer! I'm definitely going to make one of these Tuaca Hot Apple Pie Cocktails!
Oooh the apple pie one caught my eye. I love the presentation of the drinks, too – you gave me a few ideas!

These both look delicious! I love the idea of the apple pie!
I was just thinking how much I liked the copper mug. Then I kept reading and saw the cute penguin glass, lol. Both sound good and both cups are great!
