Favorite Fall Cocktail Recipes

Fall Sangria, Bourbon Cherry Mint Julep, and the Ultimate Fall Hot Toddy

Fall is here and so is our readiness for some fall cocktails! Herbs like sage, rosemary, and mint are perfect fall herbs to base your cocktails around. Use the liquor and wine you already have on hand and pair with seasonal fruits! Don’t be afraid to experiment!

CHERRY MINT JULEP

This recipe comes Dishes Delish and we made our own version using what we have on hand! Let’s put the drink together!

Ingredients

  • Large bunch of mint (I love using spearmint!)
  • 1 oz simple syrup (we made our own using organic cane sugar)
  • 1 oz tart cherry concentrate
  • Crushed ice
  • 4 oz Wellers Bourbon
  • Mint Julep Cups

This cocktail could not be any easier! I use a cocktail shaker to muddle the mint by shaking the crushed ice and mint together. Add to the mint julep cups and add a quick pour of simple syrup. Top with a couple ounces of bourbon and cherry concentrate. Stir and garnish with springs of mint. Salud!

FALL SANGRIA

I absolutely love sangria! It is one of my all time favorite drinks and can be customized so many ways! Ours has so many fall ingredients but you can add any seasonal herbs and fruits. Let’s mix it up! 

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle Prosecco
  • A couple ounces grand manier
  • Pomegranate Orange San Pellegrino
  • 1 bottle ginger beer
  • 1 cup soda water
  • A couple ounces Blackberry Manischewitz
  • Fresh orange juice
  • Sliced Oranges
  • Blackberries
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Rosemary Sprigs

Mix the Prosecco, Grand Manier, San Pellegrino, ginger beer, soda water, blackberry Manischewitz, and orange juice in a large pitcher and add several cinnamon sticks. Let it chill for several hours or overnight. Pour the sangria into each glass and top with an orange slice, a couple blackberries, a cinnamon stick, and a sprig of rosemary. Enjoy!

THE ULTIMATE FALL HOT TODDY

This is the ultimate fall cocktail! Served hot or cold, this drink tastes exactly like fall in a cup! Using copper mule mugs gives this the perfect fall look.

Ingredients

Mix a couple of cups of sparkling glogg with a shot of bourbon. Heat if desired. Pour into mugs and top with a cinnamon stick. Cheers!
