It finally feels like Fall around these parts, so it’s time for cocktails that match the season. Here’s to sweaters, crunchy leaves, autumn colors, and drinking!
Pumpkin Old Fashioned ~ You can have this one now, or save it for after Halloween, when you have a lot of pumpkin to use up. Orange, pumpkin, maple syrup, and bourbon blend together for a new take on an old classic.
Autumn Spice ~ Apple and ginger … it doesn’t get much more autumnal than that. This cocktail calls for Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, which is fabulous. But you could also make your own ginger liqueur for the occasion.
Cognac Sparklers ~ Leave it to good old Martha Stewart to develop such a simple yet elegant recipe. Cognac topped with sparkling cider (or hard cider) with a few dashes of bitters—I’ll take one now, please.
Fig Cocktail No. 1 ~ Vodka lovers, you can’t say I don’t take care of you. This one combines figs, lemon, rosemary simple syrup with vodka for a delightful drink to sip on by the fire or as you watch the sunset. (Or really any other time. I am not the boss of you. Though, I wouldn’t recommend drinking it at breakfast.)
Jalisco Pear~ This is how Margarita aficionados drink in Fall. Tequila, allspice dram, and pear liqueur are great together, which was a surprise to me. You can use St. Elizabeth allspice dram, or make your own.
