Hard Cider and Caramel Apple Gift Bucket

Although I’m not a huge fan of most draft beverages, I do have a weakness for hard cider. I think its sweet. crisp, flavor with a bit of tang goes perfectly with pizza, burgers, popcorn…you name it! I was thrilled to discover our favorite burger place in Washington has Angry Orchard Cider on tap, and then happy to find it at Costco, as well. But I do feel a bit lush-ish, having a whole case of it in the house! I need to share it, people…then I remembered…

The hubs and I actually are behaving like real grownups this weekend and attending a cocktail party. It’s pretty casual, and the hostess told us she doesn’t drink wine, only beer and mixed drinks. So I thought a bucket of hard ciders would be a perfect hostess gift!

I picked up a Halloween-themed bucket at Target, along with some Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples. I just tucked a few bottles of cider, a jar of caramel sauce (I made my own, but you could also buy a jar, and even pour it into a Mason jar to make it look cuter), and several apples into the bucket.  Voila!
