Fall Inspired Cocktails

A few fabulous Fall-inspired cocktails that I’ve enjoyed recently…

Mulled Wine


Inspired by a trip to the cute Northern Virginia town of Occuquan with my friend Allie, this is one of the simplest and best Fall cocktails. Simply combine a bottle of spiced apple cider with a bottle of your favorite red wine (you can decide on the proportion of each!).. then warm up on the stove or in your Crockpot with some cinnamon sticks. Serve warm and enjoy – this is the epitome of autumn in a cup, to me!

Apple Bourbon Sangria

(props to Bridgette and Rob for introducing me to this creation!)

When visiting my sister & her husband, they treated me to an amazing cocktail that we all enjoyed immensely! Apple bourbon sangria is a great Fall-inspired cocktail, and I love trying something so different the usual types of cocktails that I enjoy. Add ice and then slice up apple slices (preferably from mountain orchard apples you picked that morning!) & add to glass. Pour in hard apple cider 2/3 of the way & then top off with bourbon (we used Bulleit Bourbon – yum) + stir. Delicious and festive!

Salted Caramel Apple Cider


I made this fantastic drink for the first time recently, and wow! I didn’t even know there was salted caramel vodka out their, and now I want to find infinite uses for it! To make this drink, simply add salted caramel vodka to apple cider – hot or cold. Stir, sip, and thoroughly enjoy this – it’s addictive and just like a grown-up caramel apple cider!

Tell me, what are your go-to recipes and creations?!
