Oktoberfest comes to a close this Sunday, so in case you’ve gotten bored with beer (does that happen to beer drinkers?), try this tasty beer cocktail from Angry Orchard Hard Cider. It's perfect for this time of year since it combines pumpkin ale and apple cider. A dash of honey whiskey imparts warmth and depth while kicking the heat and sweetness up just a bit. What’s more, the ice-cold cocktail comes in at less than 200 calories.
Sip on this brew and booze combo alongside one of these 200-calorie salty snacks for a tasty and healthy fall afternoon.
