Since returning from our little jaunt to Vermont, I’m finding that many of my sentences are starting with “Well, in Vermont….” or “We had the best ___ (food/drink/etc) in Vermont”. I’m sure we’re being pretty annoying to our friends and family (sorry guys). But we can’t help ourselves – they just do things right in Vermont!
We had such a great time visiting Burlington, Stowe, and Woodstock (and several towns in between). Even though we were a little early for fall foliage season, the scenery was still breathtaking. Rolling hills and mountains, brightly painted barns, covered bridges, old stone houses, rivers, lakes, and waterfalls … Vermont really has it all. Here are a few of my favorite photos from our trip.

1/2 oz. honey syrup (recipe below)
Pour gin, lemon juice and honey into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Pour into champagne flute and top with cider. Stir gently. Garnish with an apple slice.
Love this stuff! Adds so much more interest to a drink than regular old simple syrup.
4 oz. honey
4 oz. water
Heat in microwave, stir until dissolved.
