Recipe: Not Your Grandma's Apple Pie

It's apple season! Cooling temperatures bring a return of fall fruit, and subsequently, the milieu of ways to use it. Apples serve a purpose well beyond snacking and baking. Try a fall-themed cocktail to use up that jar of apple butter that you impulsively bought at the farmers market. This apple cocktail uses smoky tequila and nutty vermouth to add dimension to the jam. 
Cocktail Cup While you could serve it in a rocks glass, sipping it from a mug channels gives it an extra-cozy autumn vibe. Dirty South Pottery offers a collection of Southern-made artisanal drinkware, including a ceramic cocktail glass and this cheeky "coffee" cup.

Mix all, chill, and serve over ice with fanned red delicious apple and grated nutmeg.
TLP recommends serving in a mug for an unapologetically fall-feeling.
