As if you need another reason to fall in love with fall in New York, we’ll give you one, and a way to toast to this sensational season. The ever-fabulous TY Bar, located inside the Four Seasons Hotel on East 57th Street, has introduced the Bulleit Apple Pie cocktail, available November 1,  served right out of a barrel. The barrel aging “softens the edges and adds  layers of flavors and complexity.” If you are interested in making this at home, or simply wonder how they do it, find out how below with this recipe from the Four Seasons Hotel New York:
