Warm Winter Secret Swap!!

Today I went to work and saw that there was a package waiting for me on my desk.  (I work as a leasing agent at the apt community I live at).  I wasn't expecting anything to be delivered today so I was somewhat perplexed as to what it could be.  When I looked at the handwritten return address from Virginia I was even more stumped... then it finally hit me! It was from my secret santa from the Warm Winter Secret Swap!! Yahoo!!

My secret santa was Adrienne from Some of a Kind  She was the best Santa ever! I have attached a few photos of what she sent me and I can't wait to make her recipe.  Thank you Adrienne for the great care package and very kind words! Merry Christmas!

Apple Toddy

1qt Burbon
1qt Rum
1qt Apple Jack Bandy
1 large can of frozen lemonade
2 cans of water
1 lb of Gala Apples

Core apples and bake at 350 for 15 to 30 min.  
Allow apples to cool.
Mix lemonade and water.
Add liquors and apples
Marinate from Oct 1 until Thanksgiving
Reserve any leftovers for next years batch (refrigerate) 
I have a feeling I won't be having any leftover (this sounds so delish!!!) 

The amazing mug her friend made
This is to put the mug into perspective!
