Balsamic Apple Cider Cocktail {guest blogger}

By Aleah and Nick

Happy Friday! Aleah and Nick of Valley & Co. here today sharing what we hope will become a staple in your fall entertaining repertoire! We’re so thrilled to welcome chillier evenings, cozy gatherings and heartier food and drinks with a season anew, and we’re particularly smitten when we get to taste test said food and drinks! We recently had this balsamic elixir at a dinner in a field party {it was paired with sparkling water} and the taste was so unique we played around with some flavorful concoctions for fall. Enter our Balsamic Apple Cider with a Fig Garnish.

It’s a simple enough cocktail to make in advance to guests entering your home for festivities, but it packs a flavorful punch and is quite festive. Pair the cocktail with a hard cow’s milk cheese, some salamis and cured olives and you’ve got a scrumptious spread!

Valley & Co.’s Fall Balsamic Apple Cider with a Fig Garnish


  • sparkling apple cider {either alcoholic or not}
  • 1/2 teaspoon cherry drinking balsamic {you can find at most specialty grocers}
  • fig slices

Method: create a layer around the bottom of a champagne flute with the balsamic. Gently place two or three fig slices on top and fill flute with the apple cider.

So, lovelies….what’s your favorite fall flavor? Would you test out a balsamic cocktail?
