Cocktail Hour: Maple Lemon Smash

A Feteful Life: Maple Lemon Smash

Heading into the afternoon of a recent second snow day in a row right on the heels of a weekend {meaning, my kids had been home all day long, 4 days in a row}, I decided it was high time to declare an early snow-emergency cocktail hour and make myself a winter drink. Something sweet and warming, but bright at the same time. I heart Sweet Paul — he gets it right every. damn. time. Ladies and gentlemen, I present, the Maple Lemon Smash.

 Maple Lemon Smash (from Sweet Paul Magazine)

1 ounce unsweetened apple juice
