Hey friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared a cocktail so I thought I’d round up my top 3 for the Fall and cooler weather. These would also be perfect for a little holiday cheer, or just a because you need a good drink!
Apple Cider is plentiful this time of year and what screams fall more than apples and cinnamon? That’s why this fall cocktail is first on the list! My brother-in-law whipped this up for us last weekend and it was so. dang. good.
Salted Caramel Apple Spiked Cider
- 1.5 ounce of Fireball
- 1.5 ounce of Salted Caramel Crown Royal
- 1 cup of Apple Cider
Pour all the ingredients over ice, stir, and enjoy! Obviously tweak the liquor and apple cider ratio to your liking. 😉
If you are visiting a winery in the Fall or Winter months, chances are they will have some warm mulled wine for you to sample! And trust me, you will want that warm deliciousness in your cup. This is best made in a crock-pot to keep it warm.
- 1 Bottle of Red wine (your choice)
- bag of mulling spices (most wineries sell this or you can typically find it with the tea or spices in the grocery store)
- 4 cups of apple cider
- orange slices, cinnamon sticks for extra flavor or garnish
- Optional: honey or sugar for added sweetness
Pour all ingredients into a crock-pot and simmer on low heat for at least an hour, longer if you can. You can also do this on the stove-top. Just don’t let the liquid boil–you wouldn’t want to boil off all that precious alcohol now! Taste the wine ever so often and remove the mulling spice packet once you are happy with the flavor. Pour into a mug and enjoy!
I’ve always loved creamy drinks as they taste more like dessert! So if you like a White Russian, you will like this! Also, RumChata has quickly become one of my favorite liquors. So yummy and there are so many options to choose from when mixing up cocktails.
Cinnamon Roll Martini
- 1 ounce vanilla vodka
- 1 ounce RumChata
- 1 ounce Kahlua
- Milk or cream
- Cinnamon and sugar for rimming
Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake generously. Lightly dampen glass rim with water. Dip into cinnamon and sugar. Strain liquid into glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a sprinkling of cinnamon if you’re feelin’ fancy! Enjoy!
Cheers! And may your drinks be stronger than your toddler! 😉
