Football is in full swing, the leaves are starting to change colors, and there is certainly a chill permeating the Towson air. Know what that means? It’s time to start thinking about some great fall cocktails for entertaining! Whether you’re having a Halloween party or a get together with friends and family, it’s always a good idea to have a seasonal drink recipe on hand. The great part about fall recipes is that most people love fall flavors. Everything apple, pumpkin, and cinnamon is great to use as a base this time of year. Ready to get your fall party on? Try out some of these recipes!
Fall Inspired Recipes
Hard Cider Sangria – Hard cider has become a staple of fall drinks in the past year or so. Even people who don’t like beer are starting to gravitate to hard cider. It’s a little bit sweeter than beer and leaves you with a crisp apple flavor.
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup of quartered, thinly sliced apples (green, yellow, red, or any combination thereof).
- 1 orange, quartered and thinly sliced
- 1 cup apple juice
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ cup apple brandy
- 22 oz hard cider
Combine it all together, pour over ice, and enjoy!
Caramel Appletini – Uhm, yum. Nothing says fall like a great caramel apple. Try the grownup version with this great caramel appletini recipe!
What you’ll need
- 1 oz caramel Irish cream
- ½ oz green apple vodka
- 1 slice apple
- 1 tsp caramel
Shake caramel Irish cream with green apple vodka and ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with apple slice and caramel. You can either drizzle the caramel in the bottom of the glass or on top of the drink.
Cinnamon Toast – You may have already had a “cinnamon toast crunch” shot (Fireball and Rumchata), but this one is a little bit different. If you need a warm drink on a cool night, this one will spice it up perfectly.
What you’ll need:
- 1 ¼ oz spiced rum
- 6 oz hot apple cider
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
Rim your glass with cinnamon and sugar first (using the spiced rum to make it stick). Mix spiced rum and hot apple cider together in the glass! It’s a quick and tasty way to warm up!
