I love the North Forest Kreme Liqueur in this recipe — the flavors are irresistible and the finish is so smooth. They’re the “Official Drink of Sweater Weather” after all so it’s certainly the season to enjoy them!

You’ll enjoy North Forest Kreme in this cocktail — but you should also try them on the rocks, or straight up! The quality and taste cannot be beat.
