This cranberry idea comes from Food and Wine. The ingredient list is pretty short, and the drink is pretty amazing.

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange wedge with 10 of the cranberries and the minced ginger. Add the Aperol, Lillet Blanc, bitters and ice. Shake well. Double-strain the drink into an ice-filled Collins glass and top off with the hard cider. Garnish with the 3 remaining cranberries and the slice of ginger skewered on a toothpick."

See, pretty easy to make too.

You're already gone have the apples for Apple Pie, why not make a great Apple drink from Food and Wine?

A hot toddy is basically a shot or two of any potent spirit added to a cup of hot water. At Paley's Place in Portland, Oregon, bartender Suzanne Bozarth puts a French spin on this warming drink with a slug of apple brandy, such as Calvados."

Sounds pretty amazing.
