Revisiting the last warm days of autumn, my friends Buck and Chelsea brought the community together for their annual apple cider press back in October of this year. Now if your looking for some good clean fun, this is it!
If you want to really enjoy yourself, just add whisky!

Three Parts Cider : One Part Jack Daniels.

The end of a season is marked here by an annual event, an old fashioned apple cider pressing at the Farley’s house in Durango, Colorado.

Apples are washed & pressed, assorted jugs are filled, and drinks are poured well into the evening.

The Apple Jack recipe is simple; A healthy serving of fresh squeezed apple juice blended with Jack Daniels whisky to your liking! You can think of the three to one ratio as more of a guideline!

Quality checking his product is none other than Buck Farley seen here sporting a Stetson for good measure…

Check out last season’s post right HERE to get the full experience and get your name on the list for 2010!

Cheers, Jeremy

Talk about a good time…!

So you start with some apples…harvested..not store bought. Better taste ’em!

Then you feed the machine..this is the physical part! Pick a good hat..or rock the pot!

Add a good measure of bourbon whisky…and drink up!
