Is there anything more nostalgic than heading to the orchard for freshly picked apples–and, perhaps more importantly, warm apple cider doughnuts? Perhaps it’s the Midwest in us (we were born in Michigan, after all), but nothing beats a sunny fall afternoon spent picking perfect apples and enjoying the crisp, autumnal air-and fresh doughnuts. 


We’re not picky when it comes to apples, just so long as they’re crispy, juicy, and packed with flavor. We love apples so much that we picked a subtly spicy, cozy Turkish Apple Tea flavor for Nightcap. It’s the most delicious way to settle in for more soothing slumber, which is just what we need now that nights are cooling down, making for the best sleeping weather.
