Summer has officially ended and fall is here. The air is crisp and cool. It is the perfect time of year to try one of these awesome and out-of-the-ordinary cocktails to ring in the season.
Caramel Apple Spritzers
This cocktail tastes just like a caramel apple. But, truly this drink is just as much about the presentation as it is the flavor. That is because it is served in a hollowed out apple. If that is not enough to convince you to try this delicious drink, then perhaps you will be enticed by the delicious and refreshing ingredients. All you need to make this drink that screams autumn is green apple vodka, sprite, Moscato, caramel, a touch of cinnamon-sugar and a little lemon juice. You can get the whole recipe here.
Cranberry Sauce Margarita
Margaritas are no longer just for the summer. This twist on the Mexican classic is the perfect fall drink. One sip of this delectable libation and you will know that cranberries do not need to be reserved for the Thanksgiving table. Check out the recipe here.
Leftover Pecan Pie Bourbon Shake
This tasty treat is the perfect after-Thanksgiving snack. Is it a pie? Is it ice cream? Is it a shake? No matter how you answer, you will be right. To make sure you have the right ingredients for this drink, make sure you save a piece of your favorite pecan pie after Thanksgiving dinner. Of course, you will have ice cream in the house since it is holiday season (or really, because it’s ice cream and why not?) Other than that, all you need is a little milk, bourbon and a blender. This drink is so good, you will start making pecan pie even when it is not Thanksgiving, just so you can make this drink. Get the recipe here.
If you like White Russians, then you will love this autumnal take on it. This version cranks it up a notch by adding plenty of pumpkin flavor, thanks to the secret ingredient, pumpkin spice Kahlua. Just add it to some vodka and heavy cream and voila, your drink is ready. If you are really feeling seasonal, you can rim the glass with autumn-colored sprinkles. Get the complete recipe here.
Candy Corn Martini
Do you love candy corn? If you said “yes”, then you will love this yummy fall cocktail. You can easily make candy corn-infused vodka by simply combining ⅓ cup of candy corn with 1 cup of vodka. Then combine that mixture with a few other ingredients for a sweet concoction that will knock your socks off. Get the recipe here.
If the sound of these drinks has your taste buds humming, come on into The Gibson and ask one of our bartenders to mix one up for you.
