I Feel A Block Party Coming On!

Alright, let's be honest, there's only so much Inside Time one can take. Cabin Fever has officially set in for many of us.  

Take this opportunity to get to know your neighbors.  Invite them over for an impromptu cocktail party. Here's Food & Wine Magazine's Cocktails Building Blocks Guideline.

For those of your guests that would like a non-alcoholic nightcap, try this: 

Mulled Cranberry Cider


  • 8  black peppercorns
  • 6  whole allspice
  • 6  whole cloves
  • 2  (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
  • 1  gallon apple cider
  • 2  quarts cranberry juice drink


Place first 4 ingredients on a 5-inch-square piece of cheesecloth; tie with string.
Bring cider and juice drink to a boil with spice bag in a Dutch oven. Partially cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Remove and discard spice bag before serving. Serve hot or cold.
