Top 3 Fall-Themed Mixed Drinks

#1 Cranberry Bourbon Sour

Although bourbon sours are a common drink, this recipe will put a spin on a classic cocktail and make it perfect for fall. The key ingredient of this cocktail is cranberry syrup as it will give the drink a red color and add sweetness to a normally sour drink. Making your own cranberry simple syrup will make this drink taste amazing, so try it out while you’re making this cocktail. This recipe suggests using fresh cranberries, maple syrup, and orange zest, so you will have a delicious flavor in this cocktail! Other than the syrup, you’ll use bourbon, lemon juice, cranberry juice, and orange bitters to make this amazing fall-themed drink. Try this out by yourself or with your friends this season!

#2 Spiced Apple Fizz

This delicious cocktail offers a lighter drink option for fall that will be perfect for any gathering. This is a rather straightforward cocktail that begins with shaking your favorite vodka, pear brandy, lemon juice, and honey syrup with ice. Once strained into a glass with fresh ice, you will top with apple cider for a delicious drink that everyone will love. You can even garnish with an apple slice fan and freshly grated cinnamon for an amazing final product. Although this recipe suggests specific types of vodka and brandy, you can choose your favorite to add your own spin to it. Try serving this cocktail the next time you meet up with friends or family!

This cocktail will compliment a cozy movie night with friends, or any other relaxing event thanks to its flavor that will remind you of chilly weather.
