cider bourbon cocktail with maple and bacon plus some favorite fall recipes

Light sweaters against crisp cool air. Necks wrapped in soft, vibrant earth tone scarves. Sidewalks crunchy with a mosaic of fallen leaves. An over-abundance of Pumpkin Recipes on Pinterest. It's FALL, y'all! Celebrate with this Cider Bourbon Cocktail... rimmed with maple syrup and bacon salt, it is a glassful of Autumnal bliss!
