A Calvados cocktail, embodying an elegant autumn theme. The cocktail, in the foreground, is served in a classic snifter glass, showcasing the rich, golden hue of Calvados. It's garnished with a thin apple slice and a cinnamon stick, evoking the essence of fall. Beside the glass, on a dark oak table, lies a small cutting board with sliced apples and a few whole cinnamon sticks. The background features a cozy, dimly lit room with a plush armchair, a small round table with a vintage lamp, and a bookshelf filled with classic literature. A large window in the background reveals a moonlit orchard with rows of apple trees, adding a serene, rustic touch to the scene.

The cocktail is presented in a clear, heat-resistant glass mug, filled with steaming hot coffee, layered with a creamy foam on top, and garnished with a cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
