Late Harvest Cider
"My mom's from the South, so Chess Pie is a staple," Sunny McElwain of Terrene says. "It was the biggest challenge because it's such a delicately flavored pie. I didn't want to overpower it. I thought apples and apricots would pair well, and the Tuaca has a nice vanilla flavor that balances out the acidity of the drink."
