      Thanks - when I searched, it didn't turn up anything. Glad you found it for me.

    2. Love a good dark rum: Goslings, Meyers, Lemon Hart Demerara mixed with cider. Serve cold or warm, YUM.

        I have been mixing Candy Apples lately for myself and my wife:

        Candy Apple
        1-2 oz amaretto (I prefer 1 oz)
        1-2 oz butterscotch schnapps (I prefer 2 oz)
        fill with apple cider

        I like a little more of the butterscotch to give it a more caramel-type flavor, but tweak the ingredients until you find a combination you enjoy. You can also eliminate the amaretto altogether, but I think it is a good addition to the drink.

        Mix in a tall glass with ice and watch the leaves turn colors!
