While I come from a place where there is no fall per se, the weather calls for some comforting cocktails! I am guilty of not sharing any posts for the mid-week happy hour, but here I am sharing some wonderful fall cocktail recipes – easy to make at home! The recipes for fall cocktails will usually have a lot of pumpkin pie spice – mainly ground cinnamon, ground ginger powder, ground nutmeg and ground cloves. These spices are so comforting for the crisp and chilly fall or mild winter days!
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
In a shaker, muddle the ginger in lemon juice and bourbon
Pour the apple juice, add ice and shake!
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.
