When you feel the first chill of fall, it’s time to snuggle up with a hot cocktail. For your consideration, we present a Heated Affair, created by Jacques Bezuidenhout, who makes the drink with Tequila Partida and spiced apple cider.
Bezuidenhout is Brand Ambassador for Tequila Partida. A brand ambassador is a corporate employee who represents a brand to consumers, the trade, the media and other key constituencies. The job focus is to communicate the brand message: product features and benefits, and how the brand differs from others in the category. The Partida Brand Ambassador travels the country (or the world) meeting people. Of course, in the process, glasses of tequila are shared. Put this on your bucket list as a job to have.
HEATED AFFAIR: A HOT APPLE CIDER COCKTAIL RECIPE
Ingredients Per Cocktail
Snuggle up with a hot apple cider cocktail.
*You’ll get more exciting flavor from fresh-ground nutmeg. Buy the nets in your supermarket and grate them with a fine grater like this one from Microplane, or a pepper grinder-style nutmeg grater that keeps your fingertips safe.

TEQUILA TRIVIA: THE WORM
Why is there a worm in some bottles of tequila?
There isn’t! It is prohibited by law to put anything other than the tequila in a tequila bottle.
Worms are placed in some bottles of mezcal, a less refined spirit and a precursor of tequila. But it’s strictly for tourists. The better brands of mezcal are worm-free. The worm, by the way, is a larval form of a moth that lives on the agave plant, from which both mezcal and tequila are made.
