BelleWood’s Perfectly Simple Fall Cocktail

An autumn afternoon spent at BelleWood Acres in Lynden, Washington entails long gazes at stunning Mount Baker, an awe of the ripe, gorged apples and pumpkins and tastes of some of the finest spirits in all of Whatcom County. Owner and master mixologist, John Belisle, takes us through the process of concocting his fall favorite, Hot Apple Brandy Cider, which he calls “the unofficial Seahawks drink of choice” and “the best way to warm up when you’re covered in leaves.”
