Sequins and Sea Breezes: 5 Fall Cocktails You Have to Try

5 Fall Cocktails You Have to Try


5 easy fall cocktails 

Happy Friday! Sorry for my spotty commenting/responding this week, it has been one of the busiest weeks I've had since I started here. I had planned on writing a blog post yesterday and then that didn't happen and then I thought I wouldn't even be able to post today but here I am! Ok, technically I'm cheating. I actually wrote this blog post for my work blog but I loved the cocktails I made so much that I just had to share them with you all! You all know how much I love my bubbly so if I had to choose I'd probably say the Apple Cider Mimosa is my favorite but I was really surprised at how yummy the others were as well. So without further adieu, here are the 5 fall cocktails you have to try!

Apple Cider Margarita
  1.  Apple Cider Margarita  - Who says tequila is just for summer? This tasty fall cocktail is perfect for the margarita lover looking for a fall take on a summer classic.
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1 oz Gold Tequila
  • 5 oz Apple Cider
  • Cinnamon and Coarse Sugar for glass rimming
  • Apple Slices
  • Cinnamon Stick
Directions: Add cinnamon and coarse sugar to a plate. Rim the edge of a glass with the cinnamon and sugar. Add a few apple slices to the bottom of the glass and top with ice. Add the Grand Mariner, gold tequila and apple cider to the glass and stir to mix. Garnish with an apple slice and a cinnamon stick.

Rosemary Maple Bourbon Sour
2. Rosemary & Maple Bourbon Sour - This twist on a classic Bourbon Sour is really perfect for any time of year but the maple syrup gives it a fall feel.

  • 1 1/2 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3/8 oz Grade A Maple Syrup
  • Dash of Rosemary Simple Syrup
  • 1 Sprig of Rosemary
Directions: Add bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup and rosemary simple syrup to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain mixture into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with rosemary sprig.

Apple Spiced Mimosas

3. Apple Spiced Mimosas - Looking to spice up your mimosa? This is a perfect refreshing twist on everyone's favorite bubbly brunch beverage.

  • 1 Bottle of Champagne
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Nutmeg
  • Apple Slice
Directions: Mix apple cider, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain contents into a champagne flute. Top with champagne. Garnish with apple slice.

Harvest Shandy

4. Harvest Shandy - Prefer fall beer over fall cocktails? I've got you covered! Spiced apple cider and pumpkin beer are the perfect combo for this easy and delicious shandy.

  • 6 oz Apple Cider
  • 7 oz Pumpkin Beer
  • 3 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
Directions: Combine brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg on a plate. Dip the rim on a pint glass in water and then carefully rim the glass in the spice mixture. Combine apple cider and pumpkin beer in glass and stir gently. Top with a dash of cinnamon (optional).
Autumn Spiced Rum Punch

5. Autumn Spiced Rum Punch - Rum Punches are usually synonymous with summer but add a little apple and some spices and you've got yourself a perfectly fall cocktail!

  • 1 1/2 oz Spiced Rum
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider
  •  Hard Cider
  • 2-3 dashes Lemon Bitters
  • Cinnamon Stick
  • Dash of Nutmeg
Directions: In a rocks glass filled with ice, combine spiced rum and apple cider and stir gently to mix. Top with hard cider and 2-3 dashes of lemon bitters. Add a dash of nutmeg and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
