Cheers to Autumn

Fall is upon us and the warmth of summer is starting to fade. This is the perfect time of year to pull out your Lenox Citation Gold or Lenox Spring Vista footed cups and enjoy a delicious warm drink. This is a great way to enjoy both your stunning china like the Waterford Westport while also enjoy the cooler early autumn temperatures. Here are some tasty treats to warm your insides during the chilly autumn nights.

Chai Tea Latte

3 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

3 T. packed dark brown sugar

1/2 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. ginger

1/4 t. cardamon

1 Darjeeling tea bag


Put a small pan on the stove over medium heat, combine all ingredients except excluding the tea bag. You will want to stir steadily until all sugar is fully disolved. Bring the delicious to a light simmer, click the heat off and add the tea bag steeping for at least one minute. This should provide you with two servings of delicious Chai Tea Latte.

Hot Spiced Cider

4 cups apple cider

2 cinnamon sticks, plus extra for garnish

4 whole cloves

1-inch strip of orange zest

Pinch of nutmeg


Combine cider, 2 cinnamon sticks, cloves, zest, and nutmeg in a medium sized pan. Bring the great smelling mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Once it has come to a boil reduce the heat and allow to simmer for about five minutes. Carefully remove the zest and whole pieces of spices. You may then pour directly into a cup or through a strainer into a cup. Use a cinnamon stick to stir your delicious cider.

Slow Cooker Hot Apricot Cider

36 oz. apricot nectar

2 cups water

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 tsp. ground cloves

2  cinnamon sticks


You will love how quick and easy this recipe is and so tasty you will want to share with friends. In 4 quart slow cooker combine all of your ingredients. Cover and allow to cook on low for about three hours, about half way through the cooking process give the mixture a good stir. Once it’s done enjoy with friends or you can save it all for yourself.

Autumn is here and the time is right to enjoy china as well as warming drinks. I can’t imagine a better way to enjoy an autumn evening than with good friends or a good book enjoying a tasty treat. Cheers.
