5 Amazingly Tasty Fall Cocktail Recipes
We are talking about those cozy fall flavors we’ve all come to love. Crispy apples, zesty oranges, soothing chai, and sweet maple are just a few classic ingredients waiting to be used in your next Fall drink.
Make the most of the cold with The Mixer’s round-up of the best fall cocktails this season. Things are about to get toasty. Happy fall y’all!
Apple Butter Old Fashioned Cocktail
An Apple Butter Old Fashioned cocktail is packed with the inviting flavors of warm apple pie.
Made with real apple butter (just like mama used to make), this fall Old Fashioned drink is perfect as an indulgent drink with your bourbon-loving friends.
For this recipe, you will be making your own apple butter. Don’t worry, it is super simple to make because YOLO!
And it is downright delicious. If you have leftovers, you can add it to cheese platters, use it as a glaze for that roast beef dinner or dollop it onto pancakes. Yum!
“Apple Butter is easy to make and store in your fridge. Use it in cocktails, to spread on toast, as a glaze on meat or add it to your morning oats.” (Helena Lombard, The Mixer)
Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktail
Fall is a season that begs to be draped in comfort and warmth. This spiced cocktail is exactly what you need to warm up on a cold night.
To get those cheeks glowing, you’ll need bourbon, apple cider, vermouth and bitters.
Serve your Bourbon Apple Cider over ice with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a sprig of thyme. This is a full-flavor cocktail, and the sourness of the lemon balances beautifully with the sweet notes of caramel, vanilla and apple.
How do you like them apples? Because, quite frankly, we’re a little obsessed.
Meet the Manhattan: Sweet, smooth, and sophisticated.
This iconic cocktail was created in the late 1800s, and the original recipe has been enjoyed ever since! It’s a whiskey-based cocktail that’s surprisingly mellow and sweet.
Made with whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters and garnished with a maraschino cherry, it’s a simple recipe.
This delicious drink is best served before dinner to welcome your guests.
Although there are a few versions of the classic, the traditional Manhattan cocktail will never go out of fashion.
Hanky Panky Cocktail
Gin-lovers, don’t worry. We haven’t forgotten about you. Make a Hanky Panky if you want a fall (or winter) cocktail that’s packed with zesty flavors and herbal undertones.
This sweet gin martini is anything but discreet: the gin makes it a little naughty, while the sweet vermouth makes it a little nice.
But it’s the addition of the Italian amaro (bitters) that gives the Hanky Panky cocktail its unique and complex flavor. Best enjoyed fireside, with good friends.
Hot Pumpkin Pie Cocktail
Drinkable pumpkin pie in a glass, anyone? Yeah, we thought so!
If you are one of those folks who wait all year long for the arrival of the beloved pumpkin spice latte at your local coffee house, this delicious pumpkin cocktail is going to be the star of your Thanksgiving entertaining this year!
Made with vodka, Irish cream, pumpkin pie puree and cool whip, it is as delicious as a dessert. Serve your Hot Pumpkin Pie cocktails in warmed mugs, topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
As an extra treat, you can serve baked pumpkin pie crusts on the side for some decadent dipping.
“Make pumpkin-infused vodka by mixing together pumpkin puree and spice, with ½ cup of vodka in a large jar. Seal and keep in the fridge for three days before using, shaking it a few times a day.” (Helena Lombard, The Mixer)
