Fall brings with it some great tastes and spices. And those flavours don’t have to be baked into pies or fused into stuffings. Try incorporating them into one of these tasty cocktails. You won’t regret it!
Pumpkin pie in a glass
Nothing declares the arrival of fall quite like pumpkins. But when you don’t feel like baking a whole pumpkin pie to satisfy your craving, turn to SheKnows‘ scrumptious pumpkin pie cocktail. It has all the soothing creaminess of autumn in an easy-to-put-together package. And don’t forget to top it with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of fall spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg for a real treat.
A warm sip of autumn
Saying goodbye to the fruity, floral flavours of summer can be disappointing. That’s why apple cocktails make the perfect beverage to help you cross over. And Cocktail Culture’s hot cinnamon apple toddy fits the bill perfectly. The blend of cinnamon schnapps, hot apple cider and other tasty ingredients makes it a delicious mixture of sugar and spice that is downright warm and soothing. Don’t forget to top it with a slice of Granny Smith and a cinnamon stick for decorative effect.

In the summer, a bowl of spiked punch makes an easy party beverage. But tracking down a variety of fruits in the fall can be expensive, not to mention it goes against the feel of the season. So to go with the theme of fall while still being able to have a beverage bowl for your next party, try Martha Stewart’s mulled white wine sangria. The gently sweetened combination of wine with fall fruits and spices makes it a delicious seasonal treat.
