Harvest Moon Elixir with True North Cherry Vodka

 According to

"It's when 19 million acres of woods slowly explode in a frenzy of color. It's when an entire state is in its annual blaze of glory. It's when autumn arrives in Michigan. And there's no better place to see the dynamic colors of a trillion trees aflame than along our highways, country roads and coastlines. So let's head out to the forests. And let's prepare to be amazed.”

Here’s a great PURE MICHIGAN cocktail celebrating all of Michigan’s finest Autumn Flavors using one of Michigan's finest spirits, True North Cherry Vodka from Grand Traverse Distillery, Traverse City, MI.  It's like a perfect Michigan Autumn Day in liquid form.
