This past weekend, my friends and I got together at our friend Devon’s house to carve pumpkins, barbecue and drink wine. One thing I love about Autumn is that we can still do activities outside such as pumpkin carvings. Some of my friends have serious talent! Take a look at these pumpkins!
The highlight of the afternoon was Devon’s Autumn Riesling Punch. It was boozy yet warming and full of fall flavours!

1 bottle (750 mL) FRESH Wines Sparkling Riesling
4 cups Apple cider
