The Weekend Cocktail: Hot Apple Pie

Print This Post Print This Post


Happy National Pie Day…or shall I say “week” and isn’t it worth celebrating?  Yes, January 23 was National Pie Day. As many of you know I am one of the founders of Magpie Gourmet Mini Pies. (Stay tuned for some exciting news in regards to Magpie!) I have brought cocktails to pie before —Kier Royal Champagne Pie, Mojito Pie, Pina Colada Pie, Figtini Pie and our signature Strawberry Margarita created for Cinco de Pieo! I thought it was only fitting to celebrate by bringing pies to cocktails!

Hot Apple Pie Cocktail can be the new Irish coffee. So tasty it is dessert with a kick in a glass. In my opnion no great apple pie is complete with out a scoop of really great vanilla ice cream. This cocktail has it all for a cozy winter night in front of the fireplace.

Tuaca Italian Liquor with a hint of citrus and vanilla can be purchased online at If you can’t find it you can replace it with brandy or a vanilla infused vodka.

Enjoy this cocktail and take a moment to honor and celebrate PIE! Cheers!
