Favorite Fall Themed Cocktails
There’s something special about fall. When the leaves start turning and there’s a crisp breeze in the air there’s nothing we want more than to throw on a comfy sweater and sit by the fire. Also, preferably with a cocktail in hand. We do love a timeless, seasonless, classic cocktail. The changing of the seasons feels more appropriately matched with a glass full of flavors like apple cider, pumpkin, and spices. Whether you fancy a classic hot toddy or fancy a tequila tipple, we’ve pulled together incredible recipes for autumn cocktails that will have you covered for every weekend of the best season of the year.
