While I may not experience the traditional fall weather, there's something undeniably cozy about sipping on comforting cocktails during the cooler months. Embracing the spirit of the season, I'm excited to share some delightful fall cocktail recipes that are perfect for enjoying at home during your midweek happy hour. From warm spices to seasonal flavors, these cocktails are sure to evoke the feeling of autumn, even if you're miles away from falling leaves and crisp air.

Fall Cocktail Flavors

As we transition into the fall season, there's no shortage of comforting flavors to incorporate into your cocktail creations. Think pumpkin pie spice – a blend of ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves – which adds warmth and depth to any drink. These spices are the perfect complement to the crisp and chilly days of fall, creating a sense of coziness with every sip.

About Me: A Bourbon Lover's Fall Creation

While I may typically enjoy my bourbon neat or on the rocks, there's one fall cocktail that has captured my heart this year – the Apple Pie Bourbon cocktail. Crafted with the rich flavors of bourbon and the sweet tanginess of apple, this cocktail is a delightful ode to the season. Best of all, it's incredibly easy to make and requires just a handful of ingredients that you likely already have on hand.

Fall Cocktail | Apple Pie Bourbon

The about me section of the page says that I am a bourbon lover. It doesn’t go well with the series, given I have hardly talked about bourbon in my cocktails. Partially because I love my bourbon, neat on the rocks! But this one fall cocktail is something I crafted this year and I love it! This fall cocktail recipe is really simple and you don’t have to run to the grocery store to get any fancy mixers or herbs!

Drinking is fun. Mixing drinks is a lot more fun. Mixing drinking with driving is NOT cool. Drink responsibly.

Apple Pie Bourbon


  • 30 ml (1 Oz) Bourbon (I prefer honey)

  • 120 ml (4 Oz) Apple Juice

  • 1 cup ice

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 inch of ginger, peeled and chopped

For Garnish

  • Honey

  • Cinnamon Sugar

  • Cinnamon Stick


  1. In a shaker, muddle the ginger in lemon juice and bourbon

  2. Pour the apple juice, add ice and shake!

  3. Pour the drink over ice, in a glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar and honey.


You can add ginger juice/powder in lemon juice - dilute to 30 ml using water. Stir well and strain.
